“Ahoy there all my wonderful sailors
Thank you SO much FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT – we collected a box full of toys last Wednesday and with a wonderful donation of R500 from Mr and Mrs Bob Black and R200 from Berndt Risch, I was able to buy more toys to add to the collection.
Sharon van Straten came to RNYC yesterday and met with Margie Harris, Keith Brodie and myself to hand over the toys – what a wonderful lady she is, having founded the Pink Phoenix Foundation – a non profit organization – they support children with cancer and their parents and have a totally positive outlook and encourage everyone to make the most of every day – our toys will be circulated among the children and will stay at the foundation for everyone to share. Sharon is also a cancer survivor.
Again – thank you all for your support –
We had 30 boats taking part in the race on Wednesday and managed to run a decent race for a change as the weather was kind to us. We are also hosting this Wednesday’s evening racing so hope to see you on the water.
If not – please be safe over the festive season – we wish you everything of the best for 2016 and RNYC next evening will be 13th January 2016 Happy holidays.”
Yours in Sailing
