Vice Comnodore hot item currently under debate is the re-introduction of a race fee. This is an unpopular move anything to do with money always is. Initial surns shows it eosts in excess of$85,000 per annum to conduct racing which, when avemged out over 48 races for 10 divisions and subtracting the income rcceived, shows a cost per boat per mce in excess of $16. Detailed figures will be given to all associations who are askd to reconsider the apparent rejection and consider the consequences to our sailing prcgramme. There are some vanafons to Twilight rules which are posted on notice boards around the club. A surDmary is on page 4. The prize for the Twilight Winner is a rnagnifioent Ansett flight to the Whitsundays and the use of a "Beneteau", compliments of Queensland Yacht Charters. This is by far the Race fees? lf variations to Twilight rulesf f most attractive prize in our sailing year. Therc a.Ie some minor amendments to the instructions in the 1993 year book. Check the notice board under the race tower for any special instructions. The position of Sailing Master has been temporarily filled by Steve Chaplin. Applications for the position closed on Friday 23rd April. We will keep you infomed of developments. Meanwhile, please give him all the assrsGnce you can. The tractor is baok in top condition and an alarm is fitted that will sound if it is driven into the water. Only authorised pelsons whose naines appear on the list on the notice board are pemitted to driv the tractor. If you wish to become an authorised person, see the Sailing Mastr who will run you through the safety requirements and ensue th competency of the driver. D Eratus
