The Log July 2002 page 7 (Continued from page 6) New Members Night There will be a new members night on July 5th, if you are a new member since November last year and have not received your invitation please give Cassandra a yell and she will ensure the details are passed on. Web Site www.dwnsail.com.au will take you to the clubs web site where you will find all the details on what is happening around the club, whether it is on the water or socially. Visitors to the site are also able to go to other sites including detailed weather information or you could visit other sailing club links, check out whats on special or the next social event. We will from July be featuring the Race sponsors of the month which will further advise members who is supporting the club and the photos will also be upgraded regularly. Whilst in the page have a look at how many people (over 500) have logged on since the end of May, which is fantastic. In order that we get it right and provide the information that you want please let us know by either e-mailing or simply give us a call with your comments. Till next time, see you at the Club. Bill Davies While most of the club were swanning round the islands, driving down the track or partying interstate, the dedicated few were left to fly the flag here. The club was open to members of the public and they were invited to come and try sailing. We must have had at least 40 visitors (I lost count after 20) on the water between 10am and 4pm even during the mini cyclone, which we were blessed with right in the middle of the proceedings. I think the club should thank all the sailors who took out the visitors in often somewhat overloaded boats; two up in Toppers is not easy at the best of times. It was rather worrying seeing the Corsair edging out carrying the last load of four heavyweights with Gary at the helm. There was little wind at this stage so with the water lapping at the gunnels and knowing the propensity of the Corsair to take in water...Amazingly it returned without the need to throw anyone overboard and all were full of thanks for the lovely sail! All dues go to the rescue boat crew Donny and John and especially Colin who must have sat out on the water most of the day. Sue on the front gate learned all about what boats were which, overheated the photocopier and chased pieces of paper all over the club during the mini cyclone whilst giving out membership forms and other info. Quite a few people went home tired from a good days work: I hope we gained a few new members for all the efforts. Brenda Carew Open Day June 9
