POWER SECTION: Pelican Section Trophy 1 July 2017 – cancelled

Dismal DayOur run of warm sunny Saturdays came to a sudden stop.   Strong winds and heavy rain limited visibility and made conditions unsuitable for Time Trialling and extremely unpleasant for checkpointing.  The hard decision was made and the Pelican Section Trophy event called off.

Yachties Bar was warm and cosy so many skippers and crew gathered around the fire with pizzas and a beverage or two.  Other more intrepid skippers rugged up and ventured over to Elizabeth Quay or beyond for the afternoon.

duoEventually the storm passed and the city sparkled in the twilight gloom.

The forecast is for fine weather next Saturday.  See you on the water for the Navigators/Skippers Seafarers Measure.  It is a nomination event so don’t forget to register – the form is in the OWG foyer.

Next Power Section Meeting: Thursday 6th July at 7:30pm.  All welcome!

Interesting Fact #10    The galleys on ‘M&Ms’, ‘Kryptonite’ and ‘Thanet’ were awash with mulled wine!
