****Notice for the owners of kayaks, paddle boards and surf skis****

There are still a number of owners of kayaks, paddle boards and surf ski owners that need to come forward and let us know what property is theirs so that they can be issued a tag. Kayaks etc without tags will be getting moved in the coming weeks so those who do not claim their equipment will no longer have easy access. Please contact the Sailing Office to confirm if this applies to you.

Well done to all of you on your terrific tipping this year. John wins a $100.00 dining voucher at the club, while a bottle of wine was awarded to Roy Boys and Sean.
