This could be a great night for Silverfleet parents to come along!

Just a bit of info to help new-comers to the silverfleet.
The Silverfleet is run by parents & volunteers every Saturday afternoon to encourage kids to go sailing & racing.
Each week we get multiple questions about the GSC Clubs PJ’s. To be completely honest, we as the Silverfleet have absolutely nothing to do with the PJ’s in terms of allocation, maintenance or costs. Can all questions please be taken to PETER WALSH the GSC Sailing Administrator. He is the only person that can advise on exactly what is going on with these boats. It is taking up a lot of our Saturdays, and we would really appreciate if you can resolve any concerns you have with Peter directly. We of-course are happy to check your rigging and general safety of the boats on the day.
Alternatively, a large portion of the Silverfleet families have bought there own boats once kids leave the GSC Sailing school. Talk to Daniel on Saturdays about buying a sabot. I know of several really great boats for sale and would be only to happy to offer some advice.
It is a condition of the Silverfleet and the GSC that a parent or Guardian must be at the Club or on the water watching each child while they are sailing. We are sorry, but we cannot make any exceptions. It is for there own safety and is a condition of sailing with the fleet.

Well done to everyone that sailed this week. The improvement over the last two weeks has been massive.
Lawrie our loyal starter made a welcome return to the bay with John Payne in the start boat. Both guys had not seen the Silverfleet sail for a while, and both commented on the huge improvement everyone has made. Thanks to both of you for your help!
There were so many great results this week.
Nathan in “Extreme” winning his first race – leading from Start to finish! Gabby in “Around the Buoys” winning three races in a row to be 1up boat of the day!
Mark Murray showed that with good concentration and enthusiasm results do come. This is only Marks 2nd week sailing 1up, and already he is near the front of the fleet.
“The Diva’s” was also another boat of the day. Georgia was the star improver of the week! Finally finding her groove and getting some great results.
In the 2ups, Tiger Bite was the standout performer for the day! Thalia & Zoe winning all races. Well done.
Other 2up performers were Sara & Jas in “Xtatic”, Tash & Jessica in “Nemo” and Lincoln & Jemima in the club PJ.
Having said all of that, everyone out there is doing great. We have some really good sailors like Finn & Taylor who have progressed across form the sailing school this season and are always really competitive. We had some more new-comers this week and everyone seems to be doing really well handling the boats and getting around the track.
Special mention to Wil & Tom in Hot Chocolate. These 2 young guys are sailing together for the first time and won the starters award for the day. Not only did they thank Lawrie at the end of the day on the water, but Wil was also gracious enough to welcome him back before the start on the water – well done boys, GREAT sportsmanship.
