ELLERSLIE came to PCC on Friday 20th July
We had 6 fine thoroughbred horses with 6 jockeys in a race based on the roll of the dice; there was also a Best Hat Competition as well as raffles, a special menu… there was lots of fun for everyone. There’ll be another next year .. don’t miss it.
Farewell to Pat & John
Many of you will know that Pat, our retiring Club Captain and her partner John (famous, among other things, for the being the hooter blower on race days!) have shifted to Tauranga and so we have sadly had to say farewell to them. We had a fantastic Farewell Cocktail Party on Sunday June the 17th. Jan & Russell, with the help of the House Committee ladies, provided delicious canapes, The Muse great music, Peter Montgomery kept us entertained as the MC and all-and-all it was a lovely evening.

COME AND HEAR LISA BLAIR SPEAK ABOUT HER TERRIFYING ADVENTURES SAILING SOLO IN THE WATERS OF THE ANTARCTIC. STORMS – DISMASTING – BOAT DAMAGE – THE LOT. THIS WILL HAVE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT.
IT WAS A FABULOUS EVENING – SUCH AN AMAZING SPEAKER. YOU COULD HEAR THE WIND SCREAMING AND THE WAVES ROARING AS SHE SPOKE – NOT TO MENTION THE PAIN OF FREEZING HANDS AND TOOLS WHILE SHE DID THE WORK SHE HAD TO DO TO GET RID OF THE BROKEN MAST.
Thank you Lisa – come again next year after you have circumnavigated Australia – again solo, non-stop and unassisted. No more broken masts!!
ANZAC DAY RACE: A beautiful day with a good breeze saw everyone enjoy their mid-week sail. With a Mark Foy start it was interesting to see in what order they came in over the finish line, but one thing for sure – they all enjoyed a beer and hot chips after the race.
