News from Helsinki
No that isn’t a spaceship, it’s club members Mark Seagar, Peter Coleman and Brian Pattinson behind the bar in Helsinki, pouring beers (Warning: Don’t try this at home). They must have been celebrating Pete’s Yachtsperson of the year award. Mark and Peter are on their way to 2.4 National and Worlds regattas in Finland, a fairly major journey with several detours. They caught up with Brian who just happened to be passing by.

Congratulations to our award winners at this year’s RBYC Presentation Night.
Ingénue Trophy (Brighton Championship Division “C”) - Will and Pam Merritt, Andalucia
Most Improved Cruiser - Rod Cuthbert, Halcyon.
Late last year, Rod departed Melbourne in Halcyon, successfully crossing Bass Strait for what was initially planned to be six weeks of cruising and exploring the East Coast of Tasmania. Six months of extensive cruising these waters later, Rod eventually returned Halcyon back across Bass Strait to her home base in Melbourne, and has subsequently continued to participate in Cruising Group activities here
Cruiser of the Year - Rob and Sue Hurrell, Aquacadabra.
In the past year, Aquacadabra has been sailed from Brisbane back to Melbourne, participated in the RBYC Cruising Group's annual Bass Strait Cruise, prepared for passage to New Caledonia, and then sailed there. This has resulted in than 3000 nautical miles being sailed in this past year alone. Rob and Sue are currently enjoying cruising in the warm waters of New Caledonia, before venturing further afield.

This week, Alina has put her hand up to make “Khasi ko Maasu” Nepalese Goat Curry w Rice.
This Nepalese dish is popular in South Asia, the Caribbean and many countries in Western Africa. Goat curry typically is served with rice, a side of lentils and vegetables. Most Nepali households where goat curry is served prefer to use meat that has bones in it, because the bones lend a distinct flavor.
Hi everyone,
On the field: the first two matches of Round 18 were desperately close. The Sydney Swans eked out a slender two-point victory over the Western Bulldogs on Thursday night at the SCG. The Swans have had numerous roster changes and lost a lot of close games in 2023 but kept their season alive with the win.
