There was a great turnout for the fun Flag Officers Team Twilight Race last Wednesday. What a pity that we couldn't get a race in...but that 1km tall vertical slab of rock, the source of sweet water, is quite an effective wind block. The 50 yachts out on the water reveled nonetheless with braais, music and sundowners.
The prize giving for the Lufthansa Twilight Series was a feel-good and efficiently run affair, with the clubhouse packed to the gunnels. It is really encouraging to see so many young sailors and so many women enjoying the sport of sailing at our club. As members, we all should consider introducing new members to the club.
The entry fees from the 69 yachts in this Lufthansa Twilight Series contributed towards a healthy R18,000 donation to the NSRI.
A big thank you to Lufthansa for your strong and continued support of Twilight sailing at our club. It is great news that this now longstanding partnership is confirmed for next season. To the winner of a pair of return business class tickets to Europe aboard Lufthansa, André Swarts, congratulations and have a great trip. Let us know all about it when you get back!
We look forward to the Fin de la Saison Regatta this weekend, incorporating race date 2 of the Krone Club Summer Series. This new regatta on our calendar is all about fun, and a last dance in the wind and waves in this incredible bay, as our summer comes to an end.
Next Wednesday evening, please join us at the club for an interactive evening with the SV Delos crew, who have a very cool series of well over 100 YouTube videos documenting there adventurous voyage around the globe over the last few years. It should be really good; they are great storytellers.
Our friends from Hout Bay Yacht Club warmly invite sailors to enter and compete in their Admirals Regatta next weekend. It's a great away weekend, and we hope to see you there.
Sail for fun
Vitor and Luke
