Ahoy there me hearty sailors – well another Wednesday season has come to an end – what a wonderful sailing family we have at Royal Natal Yacht Club – my sincere thanks to one and all for the support I have had from everyone over the season:
Our Commodore Graham Rose and our Rear Commodore Hans Dettman, all of the Rescue team who faithfully volunteer no matter what the weather and of course my daughter Jennifer, who has been at my side every week, and without her staunch support I would not be able to run our races – my apologies Jennifer – I forgot to thank you properly last Wednesday. Also I cannot forget the Royal Staff under the guidance of Steve Rawlins who serve us so faithfully, rain hail or shine and our Ladies in the background Liz, Gayle and Margie our sailing secretary.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO YOU THE SAILORS – for always being there – even if there was no wind, we definitely had cold beers and wine. Of course I can’t thank you all enough for the generosity in our Fun’d Sailing for CANSA – our last Wednesday evening saw us handing over a cheque to Nadia Baderoon–Ball for R31 208 – plus we raised a further R2,900.00 on the evening, bringing the Grand total to R34 108 – what a wonderful donation to CANSA ASSOC.
Thank you to Kathryn Burger, Margie Harris and Wendy Williams for all of your help and support throughout our season
We had a great wind last week – Hooray! Great music supplied by Hans Dettman and friends – very nice sponsorship from Chris Frost with Royal Tee-shirts – thanks to Nephtune’s Nymph for supplying anchor pullers and Clive Jackson for helping with results.
Don’t forget PYC have their last sail tonight –
Until next time – See Ya
Yours in Sailing
