Gentle breezes greet dinghy sailors New sailors: Youngsters get a chance to learn with the Learn- to-Sail programme. Waiheke provided the ideal weather for the dinghy sail- ing opening day. Light north-northwesterly winds greeted the boating club's dinghy sailors as they left inorganic trading'' and walking festivals'' in their wake. Oneroa's sheltered north- ern hook provided ideal pro- tection for the latest juniors beginning the Learn-to-Sail programme in the Optimist class. A hand-full of prospective sailors took the opportunity to share boats with others to get a taste of the salt air while parents and the club's newly appointed instructors guided a series of basic man- oeuvres. Graduates of previous pro- grammes, Troy and Rory Dyer James McNally, Jake Legge, and Georgie Halstead did a great job of assisting the first-timers in rigging boats, launching and retrieving from the beach, and generally demonstrating their skills to their future competitors. The club's keelboat group also arranged a race from Kennedy Pt to Oneroa with the crews from Panui, Red Rum and Sheila 2 joining in the barbecue lunch, gener- ously sponsored by Isle Land Ltd. With the beginners back on the beach, the juniors and seniors took advantage of the building breeze and swell to complete three races around a triangle windward leeward course. The Laser class seniors headed by Alex Stone and Robin Kenyon seemed to revel on the lumpy upwind and directly downwind legs, with the two Jolly Boats of Grant Crawford and Warren Gunn gaining on the reaching legs where the waves allowed fast surfing speeds and the occasional near roll-out thrill. At least five Junior Laser Radials and four 7s also com- peted and at the time of writ- ing, results were last seen in the patrol boat skipper's jacket, thus controversially requiring future verification. Visit facebook.com/ Waiheke Boating Club for more information. The club's next dinghy sail- ing date is scheduled for this Sunday, November 11. Grant Crawford Dinghy sailing secretary Petanque team celebrates another victory Les Francais: The Waiheke French Club celebrates winning the Kiwi Coq Cup -- again. The Kiwi Coq Cup was won again by the Wai- heke team at the annual tournament on Oneroa Beach. Organiser Danielle Fillion says it was a beautiful day for the petanque competition which was held between the Auckland Alliance Franc ¸ aise, North Shore Alliance Franc¸aise and Waiheke French Club team. It was a day of friendship and sport,'' she says.
