New Year Fun & Fleet Race - 26th April 2015

The New Year's celebrations were a complete success, organised by Mini, Sarah, Pranitha and Dolly.

Thanks to all those who contributed to gifts for the staff. Entertainers Bandara and Janaka did an

excellent job overseeing numerous games for the members, staff and their families. It was a really fun

morning followed by yet another excellent curry lunch organised by Gail and her team.

9 boats took to the water after a hard fought tug of war between the staff and the club members. This

year victory went to the club members despite a little cheating by the staff team, tying their rope to the

flag pole. There was a nice breeze and OOD, Jon Trepte, set an interesting course up to 14. Thomas

Munk again sailed exceptionally and was uncatchable, winning the over the line race.

There was a slight adjustment to the announced results on the day but after the handicaps were

applied and checked. Third place went to Ernst Prachatik on his own in his laser. A special mention

must go to our newest GP14 sailor Kimberley Karpinski and her guest Leah Govias sailing

exceptionally well finishing second as one of our only all female teams. First place went to Rohitha and

Rohan Amerasinghe having an excellent sail and sailing well above their handicap. It's great to see new

sailors on the water.
