Lauren’s 31st Birthday Celebration: Tonight! We will be hosting a twilight sail (weather/keen skippers permitting) – meeting @1700 on the pontoon. Snacks & nibbles will be provided on the jetty after sail (approx 1830-1900). We will then head to the boatshed for pizza & cake, but not before we polish off a few “warm-ups” on the boats (of course!) Pizza will be a $5 contribution per person and there will be a vegetarian option. All members welcome! NB: Post-sail drinks and nibbles may be relocated to the boatshed due to inclement weather.
SAGS: Will be held this Saturday and additional nominations are encouraged. Click here to nominate, or see title link for more information and race rules.

Could all volunteers please be at the boatshed at 3:30pm, and all participants (volunteers & sailors) please let Gordo know if you are coming via text message.

Trespass Notices: Notices have been issued this week due to overcrowding on the dinghy tie-up section of the pontoon. If you are a current member and received one of these notices yesterday, please attach (or make more visible from the pontoon) a current (2014-15) sticker. Come and see me (Lisa) in the office if you do not have one. Also please ensure your vehicles are displaying a current sticker – car park notices appearing soon! Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
