We are all in challenging and unknown times and I respect and empathise with the hardship that many may endure during this Covid-19 crisis. Getting on the water to enjoy our boats has become difficult so we long for the day that this is over and we can crack that kite and blast away.
Most of you probably know by now that we have unfortnately had to postpone the Mid-Winter Nationals in QLD due to COVID restrictions. The target now is mid July so stay alert for updates, we'll try to lock it in as soon as possible.
Welcome to the new look Australian VX One newsletter format, we trust you will find this both informative and inspiring in all things VX’ing.
In the Summer of 2019/20 Australian VX action has been fantastic, regattas in four different States and participation continuing to build. The foundation and work completed by the previous Committees to get us to this stage has been sensational and I’m sure I can say on behalf of all owners and crews that we are very grateful. John and Brett Whitbread and Michael James, we dip our hats.
The new Committee, elected at the AGM in Lake Macquarie have a big task ahead to maintain member satisfaction and growth but I’m pleased to say we are ready for the challenge.
This newsletter is the first initiative with a goal of both keeping members informed of all current and future VX action as well as a fantastic tool to promote our great Class.
In this edition you will find the program of regattas for Summer 2020/21, designed to avoid conflict with other events and also to promote Club racing.
You will also read about current State activity, boat movements and all sorts of boat tips and information. If you have a tip or tactic you'd like to share with the community in the next edition then please send it in.
I trust you will enjoy it and also contribute to future quarterly editions. May I also say that if you require any information regarding anything VX One related please contact me directly on 0427723385.
