MemberPoint:
It looks like we have fixed the issue of having to sign in every time. Once you have signed in and as long as you do not sign out you should find that it is all OK. Any issues please contact Colin.
Also for those boat owners who are looking for crew please remember to complete a Boat Profile. Then when you are wanting crew change “Enabled” to use. The same goes for those looking for crew but under the crew profile option.

The week that was:
Keel Boats:

Mid Week Mariners Series I: Wednesday 21st April

Unfortunately, due to an issue with calling the finish incorrectly the race had to be called ABN to keep it fair for all.

Saturday:
Liston Cup
. This race was revived this year after the first race took place in 1945. A small but dedicated fleet of 8 boats raced to St Leonards pier in what proved to be a quick race, with the quickest RMYS boat doing the approximately 21 NM in 02:20:53 which was Grand Cru 2. They also took out the PHS division and thus the Cup.
Tumlaren State Championships (VIC). 6 of these lovely boats took to the water in a 3 race series. The conditions were kind with favourable winds and calm seas so the racing was fun, fast and close. Although all boats and crew did well the stand out performer was ETTRICK – Gordon Tait. See full article HERE
