    The race started in a 25 knot northerly, gusting to 29 knots and proving too much for several of the boats.

    60 vertical piles done - 2 to go to complete the span of the wall. Then we are back to the Casino end to start on the raking piles - should not be long before we see a second barge on site to setup the crossheads. Great progress.

    A very big thank you for the amazing support from the following businesses. They each sponsored (and sailed in most cases) an SB20 boat at a fundraising afternoon of sailing last weekend. This was to support our 6 club cadet sailors selected in the Australian International Cadet team who will complete in Italy at the World Championship in July.

    Muir Global
    Morgans
    Yarrow Anaesthetists
    Harcourts
    Simmons Wolfhagen
    Willie Smiths
    Hansen Orchards
    Lester Franks

    Veolia
    Greens Quality Meats
    Cascade Brewery

    Thanks also to the DSS for hosting the BBQ, drinks and presentation afterwards. A big thank you to the SB20 class who generously donated the use of their boats and sailors for the sponsors to use. Willie Smith was the winning boat on the day but we think all participants were winners for having a go in an SB20!

    Last Friday night the Derwent Sailing Squadron Inc recognised Nick Rogers for his service to yachting by presenting him with the Graham Blackwood Memorial Trophy.

    Nick's ongoing support, promotion and competitive spirit to build the SB20 fleet has been outstanding over several years and his passion for sailing keeps us all on our toes.

    Well done Nick......
