social sailing: this coming weekend..June 4-5th…

For those of you who may want to do a bit more practice this weekend, Grahame will prepare 3 boats for your use on Sat and Sun…
He and the youth will be sailing Sat and Sun, and between the 3 boats and the 5-6 youth boats we will be able to get almost everybody out on the water for a few hours on both Sat and Sun…
We may be doing sort of two hours on ,two hrs off turn about but all who turn up will get a go..
On Sun there will be normal race training for the racing teams but the training teams ( you guys ) can just do some more tacks and gibing practice and just improve your skills..
At some point on Sunday, we will ALL join up and sail to sandbank for a chat….and sail back..
For those of you who are waiting for their turn, it would be a good thing to come and sit on the start boat during race training and observe,,,
There is a great deal to be learnt by watching and Grahame will explain this ..also those of you waiting your turn can assist with the starts and will be useful as well as beneficial to your training…
On both Sat and Sun, Grahame will spend some time in the safety boat, following those on their own and helping you iron out problems….
It would assist us if you could indicate how many may attend Sat and or Sun…
In case you are wondering, there is no charge for this…

See you out on the water : )

air pacific specials
it is with our deepest regret to announce the death of our longstanding relationship with air pacific's sponsorship for our event. if you have flown with them recently you would have noticed that they are cutting cost. grahame is still doing cpr but i'm not holding my breath.

there has been another change to the accommodation on the challenge - instead of the raddison, we will be staying at the sheraton fiji for the last night of the challenge. for those of you that want to stay longer than one night - i will respond to you individually after i've secured a good rate for your extra night.

transportation to pacific habour
once you have booked your flights, please let me know if you require assistance with transportation from nadi airport to pacific habour. we can organise pickup at the decent rate if you wish to travel by taxi. also happy to send you bus schedule should you be arriving during the day.

as this is a part time job - i am often unable to respond to your email enquiries immediately. they are delayed but not forgotten - my apologies.

thats all for now - have a great week

vinaka + kind regards

from now on I will be sending out any updated information or changes by numbered bulletins such as this
boat damage deposit
we will accept the equivalent of fj$750 for charter boat damage deposit for those of you not wishing to change any cash
air pacific specials
nothing has been confirmed yet - i will advise hopefully by the end of the week as grahame aka. fish is in negotiations with them and communications with grahame is a little bit restricted as he is in thailand sailing.
