Tremendous thanks to Potato Corner for sponsoring a sport that Filipinos can excel in and are not physically disadvantaged from the start. The Hobie 16 is now a SEA GAMES boat, as well as an Asian Games boat. th eideal combined crew weight is 285 lbs, so its perfect for two 140 lb sailors or a 180 lb sailor with a 115lb crew. This makes it a great womens boat, and a great family racer.
The Club Championship provides an extra incentive to keep sailors racing even during the rainy months, and get practice. The sailors that practice the most, end up getting better and ultimately, winning.
“B-Fleet” is the lifeblood of the future, The new sailors sail in B-fleet, and the more they sail, the better they get.
As usual, December is one of the best months for sailing, for weather, and for things happening at TLYC.
We had OZ Goose racing, The Commodore acquired a nice Gazebo, Requests for use should be directed to the Admiral. And we had an amazing moonset at dusk.
