Club sailors expect fierce competition

Saturday 2 July 2011 | Published in Regional


Today is going to be a another action-packed day at Rarotonga Sailing Club in Muri.

There will be Green Fleet sailing at 10am and the Nemo Squad activities will also start at the same time.

Young members of the Muri Eco Warriors, an environment group for children organised by the Muri Environment Care, are also invited to come along to the club for a fun time and to learn about this fortnights star of the lagoon coconut crabs!

At 11.30am an American Independence Day lunch special will be available for all members organised by rear commodore Noel Bartley.

Midday will be the presentation of Level One Certificates for 7 Junior sailors including Lovy Parker, Hayley Ngarangi Mapu, Hannah Bewg, Martin Obeda, Makua Nikoia, Jade Tierney and Tylor Davis who is well into his Level 2 certification but was away during the presentation for his group.

Rarotonga Sailing Club congratulates these young sailors on their swift progress and looks forward to seeing them racing seriously in the near future. Kia Toa.

Its been a joy to see such a keen group take it on so enthusiastically, with another group of sailors not too far behind them, already half way through their certification.

At 1.30pm the regular racing programme sees competition continue with hotly contested class races.

With last weeks terrific numbers on the water in Tangaroa 18ft sailing outriggers, Sunburst Class, Laser Class and Optis the competition will be red hot today.

Come along and join in the fun.

Intending and visiting members very welcome.

There are a few places in the Green Fleets for youngsters 7 to 11, (Saturday and Tuesday Green Fleet 1, Wednesday and Thursday Green Fleet 2) and a great chance to start learning to sail with top Cook Islands coach Junior Charlie currently working with Rarotonga Sailing Club.

For any queries contact Anne Tierney on 28243/ 54605 or Junior on 52554.
