Archive for June 2017

The 2017 AGM of the Greenwich Flying Squadron Incorporated was held on Tuesday, July 11. The Commodore detailed the club’s achievements over the past season and thanked the outgoing committee for their hard work. He specifically thanked other members, sponsors and organisers for their input in assisting the running of the club.

The members present elected a new committee for the coming 2017 – 2018 season.

Following the sad passing of Hans Kannegieter during the past season, Keith Tierney was appointed as the new club patron.

At last a Sunday Race with a good breeze, although cold. Perhaps we should expect this in winter. Great performance by GFS yachts Foxy in Division 2, Capriole in Division 3 and L’Atitude in Division 4 for their first placings on handicap.

As it turned out Division 1 and 2 were fine and sailed a good race and achieved results.  However, confusion reigned supreme in Division 3 and 4.  The missing mark at Manns Point resulted in the race being abandoned for those divisions, unfortunately nothing could be done.
