Thanks to everyone who participated in last weekend’s Techno Camp at Manly. We had 14 Techno sailors for the two days, most of whom slept over at the club on Saturday night. The support from parents, sailors and coaches was amazing (not to mention the food!)
We had some excellent training on Saturday with good wind conditions, with Kate Ellingham, Grant Beck, Ben Mackay and Tony McKenzie catering to all the different levels of sailing ability. On Sunday some brave sailors took their shortboards out into a good 30 – 35knots and entertained us all!! Kate then did some rig and tactics coaching with the sailors.
On Saturday night we had a great Kendall Cup prizegiving, with guest speaker Tony Kendall entertaining and motivating us all with amazing stories about his and his children’s life of sailing.
The prizes from W.S.P. blew us all away with their generosity and the trophies from Barbara will be treasured by all who deservedly won them. Our thanks to W.S.P, Tony and Barbara Kendall and a big thanks to Stuart Pedersen for this great series.
We hope to keep these camps a regular feature of our sailing calendar and we will be looking to have another early next summer.
Hope to see you all on the water soon,
