Richard Noel:

Just a quick report back on the weekend.

The mainsail you gave us works well, we managed to win the first race we sailed by about 30minutes.

Our major competition was of course my in-laws and after all the banter I am delighted to say we beat them.

Unfortunately I was unable to race on Friday due to work commitments and they only organized one race on Saturday however Creole Queen slipped along nicely.

Saturday afternoon everyone went for a gentle sail after which we all tied up and drifted down the dam with a couple of cold ones.

My wife, Daughter and I all slept aboard on Saturday night and this is the first time that our 2.5 month old daughter slept right through the entire night.

We are absolutely delighted to be on the water and sailing again and we are looking forward to many a weekend aboard.

As soon as we have got all the safety gear and equipment in place we will start move her around a bit during our holidays to the likes of Inhaca and Kariba however there is still a bit of work to be done before we can do that just yet. 

Thanks once again for all your assistance and help and we will continue to let you know what Creole Queen is up to. 

Kind Regards

Richard Noel

Hi All

 
Mountain Yacht Club would like to extend an invitation to all Holiday 23 owners to come and test their sailing skills at the Mountain Yacht Club's (MYC) annual "Top of the Mountain" regatta to take place over the long weekend 24 to 27 September 2009.
 
There are currently 9 Holiday 23's on moorings at Ebenezer dam, Limpopo, making them the most popular keeler in Limpopo. The Top Of The Mountain regatta is mainly for keelers however any sailing dingy with young and old may also take part. It is a fun event with some very competitive sailing on a wonderful clean dam situated right in the mountains.
 
Campsites with ablutions are available at very low rates for sailors and the local Heanertsburg fair is on over the entire sailing weekend, providing something to do for the whole family.
 
This years regatta coincides with the MYC season opening cruise on the Thursday and the clubs 50 year celebrations on the Saturday night.
 
So come and enjoy MYC hospitality with some good sailing.
