A Windrush catamaran leads the way to the windward buoy during racing at South Gippsland Yacht Club.

AFTER a wild and windy start to the sailing season on November 1, the last two weekends’ sailing on Andersons Inlet at Inverloch was a dream for the many sailors at South Gippsland Yacht Club.
The weather over the last two weekends were warm and sunny with pleasant winds from the southwest.
Those sailors who took to the water, including many of the junior members, enjoyed the wonderful conditions.
The sailors were competing in the Knights of Leongatha Toyota Series with races hotly contested.
On November 8, 13 sailors took to the water while on November 15, 10 sailors competed.
At the same time training was carried out for four new junior members while two other juniors competed in the races.
The club was pleased to see an increasing number of families enjoying the day with some juniors returning again after last year’s events.
