It was great to see many members attending the regatta in different capacities.
Unfortunately bush fire haze affected 50% of the event and our sailors had mixed results with minimal racing.
Our sympathy goes to those impacted by the fires, Woollahra Sailingย Club will be supporting relief organisations.

Ramp etiquette tips:

Be safety conscious. Booms can swing with wind change.ย  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.ย  Not for parking.ย  Not for rigging.
Please DO NOT LEAVE DOLLIES ON THE RAMP.ย  One person leaves a dolly on theย rampย then next person follows that example and the next and pretty quickly theย rampย is unusable.ย  Store dollies on the grass or on the brick pavers behind the winch.ย  Stack the dollies to minimise the space they consume.ย  Place them out of the way.
