Demonstration Weekend at Woollahra Sailing Club 6 & 7 October

Yorky took 12 people out for a sail from Woollahra Sailing Club on the weekend. Saturday was miserable and cold and Phil Tomkins who is buying a VX One spent a couple of hours out with Jason Neuhaus. They had some good rides when the breeze was gusting to 16 knots. Craig Young came out for half an hour or so with his 5 year old son James and enjoyed the lighter breeze. Yorky took a few pictures from the rubber duck. See the Gallery On Sunday John Hurley & Dario Valenza were first out of the blocks to enjoy the breeze that peaked at about 18 knots for the first trip. Phil Barnett brought his son Daniel along and they came out with Pete Davies. The breeze was up around 20 knots and we hit 18 knots with Daniel on the helm with a huge grin on his face. Steve McConaghy came down with Narelle and we went out with Rob Douglass. Yorky took the malfunctioning remote control off his GoPro and finally got some footage for the day. The breeze was gusting to 25 knots and we got an awesome ride with the bow lifting a metre out of the water at times. We started a couple of hundred metres off the club and doused the kite in Chowder Bay 7 minutes later. Our top speed was 19.7 knots. Check out the video.
