Weekly News Update


In this week's newsletter:-


VCYC Series III Sailing Races

The new VCYC Series III Dinghy Race series starts this Sunday.

Skippers briefing is at 1.30pm and the start of the first race is 2.00pm

The VCYC bar, offering club members and their guests the cheapest ice cold beer in Port Vila, will be open from 1.00pm

To cover the cost of rescue / support boat fuel the VCYC committee has deemed it prudent to charge an entry fee of VT300 per boat per race effective from this Sunday. I am sure everyone will agree that this is a nominal fee to pay to ensure a safe race for everyone.

As always the emphasis is on competitive fun and everybody is welcome so please do join us this Sunday, whether it be on or off the water!

The weather forecast for this Sunday is a nice 14 - 18 knot breeze that will suit all levels of sailors.
