Next Wednesday December 6 is the annual visit of Youth Off the Streets to GFS. Please read the following message to ensure that all runs smoothly on the night.

“We are asking yachts that normally tie up alongside before the racing to keep the two sides of the pontoon clear from 5:00 pm so that members can launch tenders from the sides if need be. This will allow yachts clearer access to come alongside to pick up visitors.

We want to take extra care with our visitors and keeping the pontoon readily available will help.

Also a reminder to skippers to offer the visitors life jackets if they are not strong swimmers.”

Apologies to Channel 9

This year, on Saturday August 12, the popular Block renovation series heads to Greenwich, a small riverside suburb in Sydney’s north.

Participants, who Patron Keith says “are all up for the challenge”, will renovate the ageing weatherboard heritage clubhouse in various teams in a range of tasks.

Perhaps referring to some of the participants, Commodore David announced “They’re all in their 90s now, relics from a bygone era, and sure, they need some TLC, but it would have been heartbreaking to see them all bulldozed”.

Architect and Clubhouse Manager Mark said the clubhouse would be on “Death Row”, earmarked for demolition if the willing band of anticipated participants fail to show up.

Safety is always a concern in any renovation exercise and Safety Officer Julian has taken enormous leaps to ensure safety procedures are in place and to this end the defibrillator will be checked as will the contents of the medical kit.

This year teams of ‘Blockheads’ will represent Twilight Blue, Twilight Black, Twilight Gold, Twilight White, Twilight Orange, Twilight Green, Saturday Blue, Saturday Green/White, Sunday Laser, Sunday Juniors, The Joe Walsh Group, Mick York Crew and The Cruisers and will contest what promises to be a spectacular event.  Team organiser and Membership Secretary Chris expects the team challenge to surpass that of previous seasons.

The Deck of Knowledge will provide a suitable back-drop for many of the activities and Protest Convener Mike will be on hand to solve any disputes. Any on water activities will be carefully managed by Rear Commodore Junior Rob with technical assistance from Laser Manager Ian who will also ensure that strict environment precautions are in place.

To feed the hungry renovation teams Social Secretary Glenda has sourced the finest array of cultured beef for the BBQ which will signal the culmination and end of the event.

All-in-all it promises to be a fabulous opportunity to get together and help Maintenance Mark keep the clubhouse ship-shape.

Due to wind gusting over 30kts at Sydney Airport racing at GFS is abandoned today Saturday November 5.
