Clarks Beach Weekend Sat 25th/Sun 26th Feb

This is a great weekend with everyone welcome, not just our LTS and Junior sailors. For many of our Junior sailors in the past this has certainly been the highlight of their season and one of their more satisfying challenges as well as being lots of fun. We sail to Clarks Beach, and the Clarks Beach Yacht Club very generously allow us to use their club facilities. Once there we pitch tents, have plenty fun, a BBQ dinner and camp the night, up the next morning and sail home. Each child will need to have a parent camp with them at Clarks Beach so you will need to bring a tent and sleeping bags etc.

Our meeting time at Waiuku Yacht Club on Sat 25th is 9:00am. We will get the boats rigged and parents will be needed to be available to help man support boats or ferry gear by car around to Clarks Beach. We will be looking to set sail from Waiuku sometime after 10am. There will be a $20 per person charge to cover food costs and we will do a shop for food on the day as the sailors are on their way. We will be stopping at Glenbrook Beach to have some lunch (in the past this has been filled rolls or similar as part of the food budget). There will be more sailors than sailing boats which allows us to ensure that the younger and less confident Learn to Sail members can be dropped in to and picked up from their optimist, depending on how they are feeling. All of the Waiuku Yacht Club IRB support boats will be accompanying the fleet during the trip.

On Sunday we will get up and have breakfast, pack up camp and get out on the water with the incoming tide to head back to Waiuku.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries about the trip. I look forward to seeing you next Saturday morning.

Kind regards,
