Spring is almost here. The grass is growing again. There are no more icebergs on the lake. The signs are all there for keen HYC sailors to start thinking about the season ahead. If there are specific events you want have mentioned on the calendar or clashes with away events that you want the race secretary to avoid please let us know soon. The draft calendar is just in need of a few fishing touches. For those of you that helped out in the control tower of on the patrol boats please let Josh Little or John Barnard know if you are not going to be available in the coming season or if there are dates you know you will be out of town.
The HYC management committee has sent the attached submission in to the Hamilton City Council in response to the council seeking input into a their revised Lake Rotoroa and surrounds management plan. Our submission is quite large. We tried to emphasise a few things which will be important for our club.
- For HYC the lake is a sportsground and it is our only option for sailing within the city boundaries
- Water quality and depth
- Trees and wind quality
- Building expansion to improve boat storage
A clash with the Legion of Rower's Regatta for Saturday means we have had to cancel our closing regatta.
Apologies for the inconvenience. Prizegving coming soon.
For a variety of reasons the Committee has decided to move the Closing Regatta scheduled this Saturday (11/04) to the following Saturday (18/04). The format of the regatta will not be changed and we will try and complete four races starting around 10am. Further details on the Regatta will be provided next week.
This coming Saturday (11/04) two races are offered as usual starting about 13:30. While this racing won’t count towards any specific trophies (other than potentially for the P Class), Saturday is an opportunity to further sharpen skills before other regional events start across the winter period and it would be good to see a reasonable turnout.
