Yes thanks to our wonderful IT lady we are up and running again.  Many bouquets of thankyous to Thysje.

So what have we been up?  Well take a look at some of these photos from Opening Day, 29th October, 2013.

It was a fairly windy day. It was wonderful to see the big boats from over yonder venture out to our bay.

Joy was to present the Ian Smith Trophy to Thysje Arthur for all the work she has done for the club and in particular putting together the 50th Anniversary book called “Pigeon Bay Boating Club, The First 50 Years”.  However Thysje couldn’t make it so Tom accepted on her behalf.

So that was Opening Day.  A bit of a blow out but good fun nevertheless.

 

Christmas Regatta held over the weekend of 7th/8th December was a much more pleasanter time for sailing and offshore activities.
