Recovered from the weekend at Inverloch yet? No? Yes?

Then it is time to start preparing for the Toronto Amateur Sailing Club 4 of a Kind Regatta on March 17 and 18.

Toronto Amateur Sailing Club has been advised that we will be turning up and have indicated that if we have the numbers we can run as our own division.   This is a great chance for all of us from the Narrabeen, Nepean and Toronto clubs to catch up, as I know that many of the Sailfish sailors from those days have moved to the greater central coast area.

As I mentioned in the last post on this, I am bringing up two boats, and I hope that if anyone else has a spare that they will bring that along as well. Toronto was a big part of the NSWSA history in the late 70’s and early to mid 80’s and it will be great get together to catch up again and to acknowledge this part of our history.

As I mentioned, I will be coming up from Melbourne with Bruce! and Stanley Crocodile, Brian Carroll is coming with Jack’s Toy, his new build, and he might even be bringing Jack Carroll with him. Ken O’Brien (1808, Cobra) hopes to be able to make it, and we hope that Graeme Remington will be sailing along with Chris Cleary,  plus there is a good chance that Ian Milton, Chris Leyland and John Dowzard will be on the water as well.

Accommodation options are plentiful if a bit scattered, although that won’t matter for those of you who live there. Those of us who are travelling in might want to start looking around as we won’t be allowed to camp at the sailing club like we used to.

Get the boat out, and get ready, if you can think of anyone you know that was around in the day and might be interested give them a call and let them know.

Come for an hour, come for a day or come for the whole weekend, but come along, if only to scare and embarrass your kids!
