Goolwa Aquatic Club Organizes Adventure Sailing Day

The Dinghy Sailors of Goolwa Aquatic Club organized an adventure sail in HMI at Riverside. The activities of the day had been planned for fun events for senior sailors, families, and the kids. The event didn’t have any strict rules and regulation regarding how you reach the Riverside. The only rule was to reach the destination by 11:30 am.

There are some sailors sailing the 11/2 hours to the Riverside. These sailors were Helen Bowlden and John Gratton in Sabres, Kairo Quilliam and Mitchell Kelsey in International Cadet, and Bryan Lindsay in Pacer. They were being supported by Rod Errington’s and his crew’s rescue boat along with Peter from RIB, Angus and Sue Robinson in one, and Isaac and Bruce Konings in another.

When they had all arrived, the participating boats now became interesting in getting on to the water. There was a short break for the sailor who was already exhausted and then the adventure sail started again. The sailors started sailing around in the water.

The primary plan was sailing around Rat Island. However, eventually, the wind had increased mightily. Thus, Kelsey and Brad Briggs, the professional decided that it is going to be challenging to sail their boat in one course surrounding the Goat and Goose Island.

The fleet of senior in Sabres and juniors in Opti had a great afternoon sailing around. When the adventure came to an end, the four boats that had to sail back Goolwa. They are going to sleep well after 11/2 hours of sailing back home. They sailors thank Peg Offler and also her volunteers for having organized this event. The sailors have really enjoyed this adventure sailing day. It was a day filled with fun and excitement for kids and adults, alike.
