A sincere welcome goes out to all the new families at KYC. Opening day for the 2015/2016 season received the thumbs up from these young sailors. While the new and eager “Learn to Sail” group took on the cold Waitemata Harbour for their mandatory 100m swim, their older counterparts showed true grit in completing a full day of sailing in a 20 knot Sou-Westerly. However, as the fleet of 29ers were putting their trapezes to good use, the parents ashore were relishing barista made coffee from the new expresso machine. With such a fine start to the season, we are looking forward to plenty of good club sailing through the summer months ahead.
