The Manex SAS Western Cape Sailing Championships is one of the best and prestigious sailing events on our calendar. This year we have the added bonus of hosting the Laser Nationals, making this event that much more special.
Traditionally we have a welcoming function on the Friday evening and of course the Prize Giving as a finale. This year we are adding an event on the Saturday evening in the form of a communal Braai and music will supplied by a D.J. A great opportunity for all to attend and socialize!

Club Burgees
We are requesting that all clubs supply a burgee that will be flown during the events. These will be taken in each night by our committee for safe keeping. So, PLEASE, all clubs remember to bring along your BURGEES.

If you are planning to book a Bungalow, there are only a few left, so first come, first served! There is alternative accommodation available in the form of B & B’s, and details of these can be found on the website- http://events.sailing.org.za/wc2007

The website has space for adverts and is a good medium to get messages across. Enquiries to Roger Bartholomew at rbartholomew@isat.co.za or at 082 9244 553

Bridge Crew
There are still a few posts open for Bridge Crew. If you are interested, please contact us at the website http://wcchamps.sailing.org.za, or call Wendy Adams at 021-511-0965
