Dinghy Sports Goes Skiing

The Dinghy Sports kids went skiing last week.  This was the little ones first time.  Not bad for three days on skis.  How lucky are these kiddos?  Skiing on Friday and sailing on that's living!!!!!

Not much snow left but the Beach House Brats didin't seem to mind.

So come and join us next Sunday for a BYO BBQ and a few laughs.

Junior Fishy Photo Comp

This photograph taken by Darrin Stollznow, new Commodore for the 2011/12 season at Bayview Yacht Racing Association, recently won a photo competition held by the Australian Fishing Magazine.  Hugh was pretty happy with the Shimano loot he received as a prize, for hooking this kingfish .

In Training for Mirror Nationals

After coming home in 13th place in the Mirror Worlds last season in Albany Western
Australia, Mark and Hugh Phillips are hoping to blitz the fleet at the Mirror Nationals
coming up in Williamstown next January.

Albany was Hugh’s first World Championship event. In Williamstown they are
hoping to better the third place they achieved at the 2010 Nationals.

Laser Master World Championships

Mark has just returned from San Francisco, where he was a competitor in the World
Laser Master Championships held at St Francis Yacht Club. He had a fantastic time
catching up with Laser mates. After a bit of bad luck and possibly a bit too much
partying, he achieved 14th place in the event. He’s very much looking forward to the
next Laser Master Worlds to be held in Brisbane in March 2012.
