GTYC Opening Day and Seniors Sailing has been rescheduled for this SATURDAY 8th October instead of Sunday due to another strong wind forecast for Sunday.

11:00 AM Sternchaser – First boat
12:15 PM BBQ (BYO) lunch near Coast Guard

Please bring your boat down and support the Senior’s Sailing afternoon. We have many Seniors registered and the more boats we have, the easier it will be to get everyone out for a sail.

We generally pick up new members from Senior Sailing days so this is an important event for our club and its future.
