This morning we worked well with a shortened team.

Just 12 people managed to take 10 people for a sail (bob around) on Manly Cove in the oh so light breeze that did not lead to much sailing, so those paddles were out in force, as well as an obliging Charlie’s Chariot driver who gave a few sailors a fast towing experience, and a few passengers who prefer speed to breeze.

Jim was in charge of the day, with Charlie’s Chariot Driver, David; Registrar, Helen; Radio Operator, Ken; Sailors John W, Michael, Helene, Jim.

We welcomed a new, very special Volunteer this morning, Francois, who has been talking to Eli, Helene, and David, from France during the Covid 19 months. Unable to carry out his original plan of a visit to Sydney to improve his English, Francois arrived very unexpectedly last week, and is already volunteering with us. He is a great photographer, so will be an excellent bonus to our Volunteer Team.

Ros was the Life-Jacket lady, Nola, the Pontoon Manager, and Leah helped by moving from deck to pontoon and back again, wherever the need arrived.

Our participants for today were:
4 from Northside: Alyse, James (W) and James, Shane, with helper Sky.
4 from Washington House: Grant, Kerry, Meghan, Anna, with helper Jemima.
Michael from Elanora, with helper Ruby.
Peter from Castle Hill with helpers, Michael and Mamon.
