A few photos taken by Geoff Lucas of the sunset and light conditions for the most recent GFS twilight. The twilight race started with a whimper and finished with a bang when a 20 knot southerly kicked in. The first half of the race (all the way to Goat Island) took 2 hours while the return for some took 20 minutes.

Geoff took the photos with his iPhone camera.

A 5 month construction of a new wharf off Longnose Point, Birchgrove began last week.

You’ll note from the image above, the existing wharf is being entirely replaced by a structure which will extend a further 12 metres into Parramatta River. You can see all the details on the RMS web site HERE.

The area under construction is contained within yellow marker buoys.  PLEASE KEEP CLEAR !

Congratulations to intrepid GFS Commodore David for his seventh (?) placing in the recent Laser World’s in the GGM Class. A very credible result considering the 60 odd boats contesting the GGM and 75+ classes.
