Photo: PHIL BARNES By PHIL BARNES The Nelson Yacht Club and the Tasman Bay Cruising Club are getting together for some friendly team racing this weekend. Nelson Yacht Club vice- commodore Chris Roff said it pro- mised to be a fun regatta as there would be children sailing little dinghies teaming up with adults sailing keel boats. The regatta is the closing event of the season with registration this Friday evening and four races, mainly within Nelson Har- bour, scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday. While all that is going on there will be a raffle, barbecue and a garage sale of boating equipment at the yacht club on Wakefield Quay, Chris said. He said anyone who had any boating gear such as wetsuits and lifejackets to sell could do so in exchange for 10 per cent of the takings going toward the yacht club s fundraising effort for new boats. Chris said the club had enjoyed a great season with membership increasing to around 250 and what was particularly encourag- ing was many of those people were family members. There had also been huge demand from people wanting to do sailing courses at the club. There s been considerably more sailing activity here than in previous years, but . . . we have been turning people away as we don t have the boats to put them in. Chris said not only did they need to replace their Optimist fleet, used to teach young chil- dren, but they particularly needed more larger boats to teach teenagers and adults. He said the club had bought three Topaz dinghies which were suitable for teaching older chil- dren but by next summer they hoped to raise around $18,000 to buy three more. He hoped to achieve this by attracting corpor- ate sponsors to put their names on the boats sails. Ideally, the club also wanted another two boats in the Topaz range that were big enough for an instructor and three adults to get into and sail. Chris said it was early days in the club s fundraising campaign but at the least, they would like to have three new boats on the water for next summer.
