          I’ve modified the Maritime chart of the Pittwater area with the racing marks added which you can download from the link below.

          There’s a smaller version here but you may find it difficult to read the detail.

          I have a KML file available with the marks as waypoints for anyone who uses a GPS or iRegatta.

            It’s official, Easter Race Day is Sunday 20/4/14. Everyone is welcome, as this is just a social race day, please be warned no prizes or trophy’s will be awarded and there is no entry fee’s. The aim is to get Weta racing happening in Sydney and have fun. So if you’re new to sailing or just purchased a Weta or even hopping to be on the next America’s cup yacht to represent Australia, don’t wait for the phone call just bring your Weta down and join in the fun. We are launching from Bayview Park boat ramp. UBD map 118 G12 next to the tennis courts on Pittwater Road (Nearest cross street is King Edward Ave) Set up is at 9 – 9.30 am. Race brief will be at 10.30 am, and Race 1 starts at 11.45 am. The start line will be the jetty at Taylors Point (UBD map 118 H 1) We have yet to decide whether it will be 1 long race or 2 shorter races, wind direction and weather permitting. For more information please call Peter DuRoss on 0418473868 or email at peterduross@bigpond.com And don’t despair myself and other’s will be sailing on other days over Easter so if you want to go match race practicing or a leisurely sail give us a call.

                Dangerous surf conditions to affect the entire NSW coast this weekend

                . ©

                Roads and Maritime Services has issued an alert after a Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) warning about dangerous surf conditions forecast to affect the entire NSW coast this weekend.

                A slow moving low pressure system near New Zealand is expected to create dangerous conditions from late on Friday.

                Skippers and owners of small craft should be on high alert and check the conditions before considering crossing a coastal bar or heading offshore.

                Rock fishers should also check weather forecasts before heading out to decide whether it is safe to fish near dangerous surf.

                Strong winds can also cause dangerous conditions for vessels on moorings which have been poorly maintained.

                Every skipper is responsible for the safety of their vessel and all on board. Roads and Maritime advises skippers to:
                • Check the official weather forecast before and during boating
                • Ensure the boat and its equipment is suitable for the conditions
                • Log on/off with a Marine Rescue NSW marine radio base for every trip offshore
                • Wear a lifejacket.

                  Hi All

                  I have now also added the location of the local sailing clubs should we wish to flashmob them to spike their interest (!) and also a couple of cafes near the water for refuelling.
