We've got a team of parents and sailors led by Debbi Fincher helping to organize this year's fundraiser. There's always lots to do and it feels great to put this into gear earlier than we have in the past.

Thanks guys!

We had 12 sailors out this evening for our first Summer Sailing session. Conditions where a perfect sunny and 8-12kts of breeze. Technical issues meant we had to race around crab pots but we ran three good races and had some close racing at the front between Per/Leah Black and Dave/Timmie Mountford.

Results from the Evening:

1. Dave/Timmie
2. Per/Leah
3. Alana
4. Zack/Jacob
5. Gib/Erika
6. Austin

And we'll do it all again next Tuesday!

Sailors. The boat shed needs organizing after the sailing team's Spring season. Peter will be guiding a 1 hour organizing effort before the Community Sailing which starts this Tuesday. If any of you can show up an hour early (4 - 4:30PM) to help get the boat shed squared away that would be most appreciated! We need at least 4 able bodied sailors to make quick work of it. Thanks, Gray ... See MoreSee Less

The fabulous Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp & Bateleur Camp team recently joined Africa Foundation in the local community to do a clean-up of the increasing litter problem at a nearby shopping mall. The ever-growing rubbish is posing an immediate threat to the local parks, wildlife and the safety of young children. Thank you team for keeping the Mara clean! #EmpoweringCommunities #EnablingConservation #CareoftheLand #CareoftheWildlife #CareofthePeople
