Notice to Members - Rick Welch appointed to the Board

Dear Members

At the recent Annual General Meeting Michael Lockley was elected to the position of Vice Commodore after serving one year of a three year term as a Director. Consequently the Board are required to appoint a Director to fill the casual vacancy until the next AGM when an election will be held for the balance of the term.

Jim Colley & Shaun Connor 29er Class ISAF Youth Worlds, Portugal, Sailing Report

The next leg of our tour was the ISAF Youth Worlds. We had been very excited about this regatta and unique experience for about 6 months and it finally came time for the regatta!
The ISAF Youth Worlds is one of the most prestigious youth sailing regattas you can go to and only one team from each class can represent their country. We won the Australian Youth Nationals in Sorrento and have been training hard with our coach Traks on Pittwater.


We arrived in Portugal and were dropped at our Hotel on the 7th of July. We were very happy with the hotel as it had many great facilities such as gym, outdoor pool, indoor pool with spa and we were very excited. We met the rest of the Australian team and enjoyed dinner. The next 3 days we had a 29er which we chartered to get to know the local race course and conditions. These 3 days we experienced very light winds during training, giving us time to appreciate the stunning coast of Tarvia, Portugal.

Jim Colley & Shaun Connor 29er Class Open World Championship, Canada, Sailing Report

After Shaun and I had completed our two events in Europe we traveled straight from the ISAF Youth Worlds in Tavira Portugal to Kingston Canada, where we were competing in the Open 29er Worlds. We arrived six days before the regatta started to give us plenty of time to observe the conditions and line up the our fellow Aussies. First we unloaded our boat from the container, as it had come directly from Kiel after the Europeans. Thankfully it did not need much setting up as we had spent two days on it before the Europeans, replacing all the ropes and blocks with ones of our own that we, with the help of our coach Traks Gordon, had prepared prior to leaving Australia. We had a day to rest and recover from jet lag before our first training session.
The next day we hit the water to watch some of the racing at the north American Champs. This gave us valuable insight into the local conditions, and for the next three days we sailed in a range of different conditions. A day before the event officially started we decided to have a day off and had a game of golf with some of the boys from the team. It was definitely nice to get away from the sailing scene before the event started. Saturday we weighed and registered then had a quick sail in the first good breeze we had had the whole trip.
