Ahoy sailors –
What a fantastic season we have had – our Wednesday weather has been very kind to us allowing RNYC to hold all 12 races in the season. We haven’t had a chance to update our leader board but do have the running results for all to see, via our website.
We have averaged +- 25 yachts on the water – thank you as always for your support – it is really appreciated.
On 22nd March, we said a fond farewell our sponsor for the season – Adele von Landsberg and her team from Standard Bank Wealth Management: they have become new friends and part of the RNYC family, amazing with their prizes and supporting us through out the season. I don’t know whether you the sailors realise it, but having such a sponsor allowed me as Race Officer for the season, not to worry asking our sailors to sponsor a Wednesday evening Fun’d sail, nor do a turn on Bridge duty – you might not be so lucky next season. My sincere thanks to Hans, Jennifer, Steve, Vanessa and Moses for helping me carry our my RO duties – another season under my belt.
We also had with us, Nadia Baderoon from the CANSA ASSOC, who was overwhelmed when Royal Natal Yacht Club Commodore, Graham Rose and members handed over a cheque to the value of R52 000 – how fantastic is that – a very big THANK YOU goes to all our members, family and friends who supported us throughout the season – that is not the final figure but what a difference that can make to our Community!!
Next Sunday – 2nd April we have the Umloti race off shore please come and join us –
Take care on and off the water – have a Blessed Easter
Yours in sailing
