There were a few “Hello – I haven’t seen you for 30 years” greetings and nostalgic memories visited, last Friday at the PCC when a group of friends gathered to remember Digby Taylor, who passed away last month in Rotorua. Organised by former Watch Captain Mike Keeton, Chris Barker (who compiled a great photo remembrance) and Paul Meyers, it was good to hear the stories (the facts and the fiction), and to give a last salute to a great sailor.

PS – HAS EVERYONE SEEN THE LIPTON CUP 2017 VIDEO? IF NOT GO TO THE ‘RACING PAGE – LIPTON CUP’ AND WATCH. BEAUTIFULLY DONE.
WESTHAVEN MARINA OPEN DAY.
The weather was brilliant and so was the music – both the Marching Band and Ukalele Band and the Ponsonby Cruising Club did their bit to make the day memorable for the visitors. Our volunteers cooked and gave away nearly 500 free sausages, we gave rides on the “Watchman” around the Marina, we offered “Have a Go” sailing to kids and adults on the Sailing School Optis and Far East 11’s, and we opened the Club for people to have a look around and learn the history of the Club and the famous Lipton Cup. As a result of all this activity we now have some new members and loads of inquiries from people wanting to learn how to sail. How good is that?
Thursday Night Music.
Our ladies from GANZ – Val & Frances are now our resident Thursday Night Musicians.
Come up to the Club after sailing for a beer or two, a meal from our ever changing menu and listen to some cool music for a pleasant evening socializing after your day on the water.
