Hoping you’re all getting keen for a good season ahead. A few of the kiters have been out there already, Glenorchy, Crighton and even down to the South Coast…. so its time to get gear out again… along with the hat, hot tops and booties ! Sorry for the short notice but there’s a few events listed below coming up this month. We’ll be organizing an AGM pretty soon so if you’ve got any news you think other local sailors would be interested in, do drop me a line and I’ll pass it on…. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
