Sailing is underway for the summer season. Good numbers at the first Twilight race, with Learn to Sail in full swing. 10 Hamilton sailors participated in the P Class NI Champs in TGA recently. Hamilton P's made up just under a third of the fleet!
Opening Day is down for October 12th with an initial Sprint Series - just for something a little different. We will have a Clean Up on the Saturday morning, starting at 0900hrs to ready the club for the coming season. The "chores list" is in the newsletter below.
The programme and duties roster is attached. It is pretty settled, but if your duties are a problem, then let us know about it.
As signalled at the AGM, we will be implementing ClubHub club management software this season. This enables on-line registration and payment and should ease the admin burden for club officials. Click here, or on the link at the right of the page. We are still learning about this software, so please contact us with any difficulties. Fees for the coming season,

The 2013 HYC Annual General meeting will be held in the clubrooms at 1930hr on Tuesday 18th June. All members welcome. Supper will be available after the meeting. We have a fine selection of nominations for the committee so we won't be needing a press gang for the coming season. Just remember to be a little bit cautious about raising your right hand and it will be safe for you to attend. Rob Ebert will be circulating the agenda shortly.

In the end Jason won the P Class easily with Annie away playing soccer. Brodie had a comfortable overall win in the Optimist but the pack are getting closer. The Starling went down to a countback victory to Olivia.
There were a couple of errors in the C3 and C4 (C4 was also Club Champs CC7) race results which have now been corrected. The placings have not changed for the series though. One error was simply reading a a handwritten 7 as a 2 (14:52:42 instead of 14:57:42) when entering the results for the Lasers. Thanks to the eagle eyed error spotters. Please let me know if results look a bit weird as this kind of error is very easy to make, especially with some people's writing, but I'm not one to complain.
The racing today was great to watch with lots of lead changes through the races and very close finishes in many of the fleets. Win of the day has to be Rob Ebert's come from behind in the last 50m to pip Jacko on the line by 0.5m or less ("it was the weed" we heard Jacko saying).
