WSC Hose rack
The hose rack is there for all members to use. If the hose is not coiled after use it encroaches on the yard, creates an obstacle and becomes hard to use. Ensure the hose is coiled after use and the water is turned off at the tap – don’t rely on the trigger of the hose gun.

Good luck to our Woollahra members that are competing overseas at the 420 world championships in Vilamoura Portugal, the ISAF youth world championship in Poland, and the Laser world championships in Japan and Optimist World Championships in Antigua . We wish them good luck and fair breeze.
