Legends of Woollahra Sailing Club – Brett Beyer – By Yves Stening
In November this year, Brett Beyer was honoured by the NSW/ACT Laser Association with Lifetime Membership. Usually this kind of award comes to an athlete at the end of a distinguished career, a mark of respect for a once great contributor. However, while Brett’s contribution has indeed been great, he receives this award while still at the top of his game, both as an athlete and coach. Read full interview

Ramp etiquette tips
We know it’s a difficult time during ramp construction, however let’s all …
Be safety conscious. Booms can swing with wind change. Pedestrians and young children are unaware of the dangers be very careful when crossing the footpath.
Please do not queue across the pedestrian footpath outside the Club. Move boats forward when washing.
Use the ramp for launch and retrieval only. Not for parking. Not for rigging.
Please DO NOT LEAVE DOLLIES ON THE RAMP. One person leaves a dolly on the ramp then next person follows that example and the next and pretty quickly the ramp is unusable. Store dollies on the grass or on the brick pavers behind the winch. Stack the dollies to minimise the space they consume. Place them out of the way.

Saturday 07 December: Open from 09:00 to 16:00.
