HBYC's Junior Sailing programme gets a fantastic boost!

 Roger unveils the name "Jolly Roger".
Many thanks to Roger for his very generous donation!

(two new 09ers and some cash!!)
on behalf of HBYC's Youth Sailing Programme.

who managed this whole affair (as usual!)
Hout Bay Yacht Club's Junior Sailing continues to go from strength to strenghth. The sailing programme is in full swing, the 09ers are out regularly with the little ones, and the L26 contiues to thrash the rest of us with the more advanced sailors.
In this case the club received a generous donation from Roger, which we raffled - in order to raise funds for the Youth Sailing programme. As it happens, the draw was won by Robin Parker who then kindly donated it back to the programme. So the club is richer by two brand new 09ers, plus some cash!
Well done to all those who were involved in this great programme. Is this happy news or what?!
