What a great morning on the water. Winter sailing is fantastic!! Our fabulous volunteer team arrived early to put out enough boats for the groups coming sailing this morning: Freshwater High, JARRBEL and BIRDS.

The Sailing Coordinator from Heaven: Tara kept everyone and all boats in line, didn’t let anyone stray from the straight and narrow.
