Couta Sailing Programme

On the weekend of the 6th ,7th and 8th Oct there will be activities on Sydney Harbour covering the Thistle Cup, the Murial cup and Gaffers day. ASC is not directly involved.

On Monday 9th Oct there will be a delivery race from Sydney to Pittwater with ASC the finishing line and with a BBQ and welcome bar on our deck that afternoon (subject to weather!). We hope to moor 15 Coutas in front of the club by requesting members to vacate and lend a mooring to a visitor for the next 8 days.

There are practice races schedules for Wednesday 11th (possibly with Woody Point) and Friday
13th each followed by drinks and BBQ on the deck.

Saturday 14th is the serious racing followed by drinks and a social event that night with catering, and an auction. Due to numbers this is limited to Couta participants and their partners.

Sunday 15th is the final race which is a passage race. Our normal club activities will also be happening and yes it will be a busy day. There will be prize giving late afternoon.

Monday 16th is pack up and ship yachts home.

Moorings

We are asking any member who has a private or a club mooring to consider if they would be willing please to loan their spot to a visiting Couta. Options are to anchor somewhere, use one of the cruising club moorings such as at the Basin, get the antifoul done that week or else in conjunction with the Couta association we will pay for a mooring at Careel Bay. Lucinda has a spot on a nearby jetty and as some moorings have double blocks we are hoping to raft up two Coutas where possible.

Jeff Conly is organising this aspect (0419 753 404).

Volunteers

The Couta Association is providing the start boat and race officials for the official races but we will need some help for the mid week races. Volunteers will be needed for the bar and BBQ events. The Saturday event is catered for but we will need some assistance for set up and cleanup. Getting sailors to and from their yachts as well as to club members whose yachts are no longer in front of the club will require some logistical support.
