Old Timers Race & Luncheon

The annual ‘Old Timers’ Race with an 'Old Timer' Member at the helm, got off in a 6 knot westerly and was quite a sight with 26 boats on the start line (some a little too close). Pittwater played its usual trick between Long Nose & Soldiers Point with an East/Westerly blowing, keeping everyone second guessing their decisions. Pretty Woman took advantage of having the tallest mast in the fleet and managed to connect the dots well enough to take both Line Honours and Handicap Wins. 


Everyone then returned to the club for the Luncheon which saw 138 Members exchange tails and enjoy Club comradeship. A highlight was the fillet steak overseen by our new head chef who is already winning hearts through peoples stomachs. The hostly contentested and sometimes trivial 'Old Timers Quiz' was this year won by Team Leeroy Brown, by a rather large margin of 29 points. The joint wooden spoon of Trivia who shall remain nameless, both finished on 9 points and earned a commissary beverage. 

This year's race winners were:
1st: Pretty Woman - Bruce Staples
2nd: Bombolo - David Warren
3rd: Baragoola - Arthur Spithill

Keep Pittwater's Waterways Clean with a Seabin

The Club is committed to keeping our waterways clean and in doing so is supporting Archie Mandin and the Seabin initiative as well as engaging our Members and the broader sailing community to be responsible on water. 

  • Seabin will be in action on A arm from the Sail Expo weekend 27-28 April - come down and see it in action.
  • Archie will be around over the Sail Expo weekend to meet members and discuss the Seabin and his own passion to keep our waterways clean.

Who is Archie? My name is Archie Mandin and  I am a Seabin Ambassador. I started this campaign because I want to take a stand against ocean plastics!

My goal is to raise enough money to bring a minimum of 20 Seabins to Pittwater NSW as I want to give The Northern Beaches the opportunity to reduce its plastic pollution impact on the ocean. Its amazing how much accidental rubbish comes down our creeks and into our waterways. 

I am going around to all the Marinas and offering a $ for $ option. 

If they put $3,000.00 in my Campaign I will find the other $3,000.00 from the community, as its our rubbish coming from creeks and drains that end up in the marinas as they act as catch points, each bin costs $6,000.00.

The first one is now paid for and going to homeport marina. Each Bin gets a school attached, they will monitor and collect data, it will be exciting to see the results.  

I need your help to raise money along the way. The Seabins a revolutionary ocean cleaning technology which is essentially a floating rubbish bin that operates 24/7 catching all floating debris in the water. Visit my GoFundMe website Here.

The Seabin helps clean the ocean of floating debris which in turn creates cleaner oceans and we all benefit from this in one way or another. I mean, who really wants to swim in pollution? Not me that’s for sure!

Did you know that 300 million tons of plastic are produced in the world every year, half of which is for single use products, from this more than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year. We need to do something about it and now with the purchase of a Seabin we can all participate and make a difference! 

Join me and my campaign to help ensure cleaner oceans!

Easy Tiger Racing at Ficker Cup

Chris Way and his team of Murray Gordon, Tom Spithill, Mark Dorling, Katie Pellew & Andrew Hudson travelled to Long Beach, USA to compete in the Ficker Cup. Eight teams from around the globe competed in the 40th Ficker Cup match race: three days of what Principal Race Officer John Busch called, "Awesome, epic sailing." Although the wind was slow to come up in the morning, when it did fill in, it was idyllic, with cool ocean breezes and plenty of sunshine. 

The team, which were the only newcomers to the event and to the Catalina 37's, had a strong 2 days of racing and narrowly missed the Semi Finals by 1 point. They are already hopeful to return next year and fight for the win in the Ficker Cup and to qualify for the Congressional Cup.
