The season for the Gosford fleet on Brisbane Waters is shaping up to be a close one, with eight boats on the water every Saturday afternoon. We have had three Club Championship races so far and the results show that it's going to be closest in years. Only three points separate five boats.

Greg Humphries has 'upgraded' to AUS 950, with his son Kierin moving up from 16' sailing on Lake Macquarie to take over his Father's old AUS 1029. Early results indicate Greg must have taught him a thing or two, because he is fast from day one!

The club is gearing up for the NSW State Titles, which are to be here in February. Good numbers are expected to be on hand for some tough racing on flat water on Brisbane Waters. There may even be an America's Cup Champion sailing last year's and eight times previous club champions boat.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in February.
