Re: For your info
Thanks for that Rob. The article took some finding; the September edition had already been taken from the shelf and replaced by October. The photos were a real "back to the 20th century". Some of the best days of our lives were spent on Upstart Bay, an unbeatable escape from a mad world growing madder. The club can't be far off a 30th anniversary. I did see one photo of an RL being launched at Molongle. Are there any others?
Cheers
Mike

Hello Mike The Club is going well we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year. There is a sail about every third weekend tide & weather permitting . We have 1 RL24 in the fleet "Escapade" you would remember from Townsville a verv early boat & My RL28 although there is another 28 in the district. The main aim of the Club is still for every one to have fun & enjoy themselves with about 3 or 4 BBQ meetings though the year with the odd Grottie Yachtie night thrown in. Our race starts are still the same where everyone lines up as close to a straight line as possible & the Cruise Director drops a hat & yells out GO. Twlight sails are a regular occurance on Saturday towing a couple of spoons up to the Bun & back followed by the evening BBQ at the hut with the order of the night back to the boats for coffee, port & fruit cake. We would love to see you & Sue tow the boat up here when you get some spare time for a spot of Sailing, fishing & crabbing. Regards Rob
