Juniors Quest Fleet

The squad was back on the water this week under the guidance of Patrick Walby (Coordinator) and Graeme Savage (Parent group Chair) they do a fantastic job with the fleet ensuring there is a good turn out of both kids and parents. If you are ever at the club on a sunday morning say hi and even lend a hand.

Below is Graeme’s weekly report:

Last Sunday squad training started with some excitement with the issue of RMYS Junior Racing support apparel to the parent committee. They look fantastic. Do you think I could have taken a photo………well I could have but didn’t…doh. Make sure we all wear them next week for a photo shoot.

Thank You to RMYS and Colin for organising this. We look like a professional outfit!!……..

Warm weather and good NW breeze made for flat water and fun sailing.

We had three quests out on the water. The highlight of the morning seeing Scarlet capsize and Alex remaining dry whilst Carli went in the drink. The smile on Alex’s face in the photo pretty much sums it up…..priceless. I’d be careful though Alex. If you’ve seen Carli play netball there’s a bit of white line going on so…..…..I wouldn’t mess with her.

 


Volunteers: help is still needed.
