Sunday December 2

Sunday 2nd December 2018 saw an excellent day with a nice northerly breeze and the biggest fleet so far this season.
Time to get a little more serious about the rules – especially on the starting line where the larger fleet makes things more interesting.
NSW has been recalled back to Sydney ( I assume it was a faulty product issue ). He will be back next year when they fix him and when he remembers how good it is in Queensland.
Good luck to all in coming weeks.

Paradise Radio Yacht Club … IOM Traveller’s Mug

PRYC is introducing a Trophy for competition by Visiting IOM sailors. The competition will be raced monthly in conjunction with PRYC Saturday nonchampionship scratch sailing days. Participants will be awarded their respective points in the PRYC scratch event which will be cumulative over each calendar year. The Trophy will be a traditional sailorʼs pewter mug, suitably engraved and apart from generating a bit of fun, it is hoped that over time “braggerʼs rights” might attach.

This first abbreviated year will commence on 7th July 2018, followed by: 18/8, 15/9, 6/10, 3/11 and 22/12. We look forward to hosting entrants on those days when PRYC normal sailing fees $4 will apply and no prior entry necessary, just turn up and sail.
