There has been so much going on since the last update!
Newsletters: We now have what we think are ALL the newsletters in captivity available to view from 1964 (!) through to the mid ’80’s thanks to the generosity of Ian Milton and Jack Carroll. Thank goodness someone held onto all this stuff. Apart from historical interest, there are some good articles on boat setup and tuning to get you ready for Inverloch. And who knew that there were some successful “soft” i.e. not fully battened, sails in the early days, apart from Jack of course.
NSW Sailfish Association: On the 24th of April 1967 at the home of Ben Castle a meeting was held to form the NSWSA. As a result of this Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club, which had been in suspension was re-formed and is still going strong. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the NSWSA we will be getting together at Narrabeen to sail or to eat or to sail and to eat on the 24th of April 2017. Come along, share some stories and reconnect with old friends. Details will be posted on the site after Inverloch.
Inverloch: Now just a couple of weeks away and by last count we hope to have at least 11 Sailfish for the Regatta.
Photos: As well as the Newsletters we have lots of new photos and more to come.
Register: Lots of historical updates and a few updates to current status but we still want more information, so get in touch if you still have a boat tucked away or know of one.
And that is about it for now, if you can make it to Inverloch, with or without a boat, we would love to catch up, so come on down for a day trip at least if you are based in Melbourne or Eastern Victoria.
