Toms River Sailing Club in the USA liked our logo so much, they used it themselves without permission. Naughty, but hey, they’ve got good taste!

NR Oppie Provincials and GP Series Results & Prize Giving

NR Provincials

Great to see the “gees” back with sailors and parents after the lockdown in Gauteng and seeing everybody on the water.  Great to see newcomers young and older participating in the provincials. Thanks to everyone that is putting a huge effort in to increase our Oppie fleet. With your effort and commitment I am sure in no time we will reach our goals.

Sailing conditions for day 1: Wind speeds of 16 Knots gusting 25 plus.

Sailing conditions for day 2: Wind speeds of 12 Knots gusting 20.

Racing day 1: Heavy gusts with Adrian, Aydin and Robbie using the conditions well to have very competitive racing and Christiaan and Dawson also getting into it.
