Thank you to everyone who participated in our Australia Day activities. The day kicked off with an address from our Commodore, Graham Cunningham with the National Anthem proudly performed by Pete Miller. Junior Club Captains Angelique Gleeson and Sam Stringer raised the National flag. We then enjoyed watching our junior sailors dress up their boats in the spirit of Australia Day before the Buxton Cup dinghy sailing. Sausages and bread were enjoyed on the Western lawn with Charlie Sillypants entertaining the kids. Beach games, Saint Moritz beach balls and beautiful gift bags from Saint Moritz by Gurner for the skippers participating in the Couta boat race in the afternoon.
