11 am

Skippers Meeting for the Owen Manley Pursuit Race, which will start at 12:30 and end at Brakey Bay, please sign up for this race so that the Fleet Captain has time to calculate your start time.  This is a race that gives you your handicap at the beginning of the race, and who crosses the finish line first wins.

3 pm

Circle Raft formation in Brakey Bay under the supervision of raft master David Kerr (Kermac).

Please sign up for this so that David has an idea of the size of the circle required. Instructions to follow.

East Harbour Buoys

Dockmaster Chris in conjunction with Don Francis (Capella c) is placing some buoys in the east harbour for weed testing measurements. These buoys are javex bottles and fenders, please do not move them.  If they are in your way please talk to Chris and he will move them.  These buoys were in the harbour last summer and did not seem to affect any boats.

Think sun and wind for the weekend.
