Our Club night for February was at the home of the Alma Doepel where a good crowd gathered and were welcomed by Tom Parks and Robert Vanderstadt of the Alma Doepel Supporters Club.
The sailing day at Rye was well attended and the weather was perfect for an enjoyable day ably OOD'd by Tony Remington who has also written a report accompanied by photos by Kerrin McNolty and Penny Braybrook, with many more from Rob Ripley available on our website.
For the month of March (when we are locked out of the APYC facility due to the Formula 1 Grand Prix) we will be meeting on 19 March at Bell’s Hotel in South Melbourne to enjoy an informal evening, together with a briefing by Leigh McNolty on the Williamstown sailing day (23 March).
Later in the year we have a couple weekends away arranged:
Keep your eye on the website and the activities schedule and I'll look forward to seeing you at the events.
Chris Kelly, President.
Have you recently had a great day on the water, voyaged from A to B successfully, or completed a small project such as a locker lid or new spar? Our members would love to hear about it!
We also encourage members to share their achievements and experiences at club nights. Bring along photos, drawings or examples and feel welcome to talk about these as part of the meeting.

The Wooden Boat Association was formed in 1989 for people who enjoy wooden boats and wooden boat building.
Members appreciate wooden boats for their aesthetic qualities, the beauty of the boats and the materials from which they are constructed, and the pure romance of wooden boats.
In this age of mass production, each wooden boat is as individual as her owner.
We have 26 guests and no members online
