Well sailing at the North Harbour SC has now finished for this season past and we are beginning to organize Prize Giving functions as well as embark on a major maintenance program for the Hagar. With the 50th Endeavour Yacht championships to be conducted we are keen to have the old girl looking good.
Rod has already procured the paint to completely sand off and repaint all the top works as well as the non-skid areas. At this time we will also be re-placing the old crazed four cabin windows. We will also spot sand the mast and boom where the paint is blistering, prime and re-paint it where needed. A number of sheets and control lines are to be replaced and some of the instruments may also be replaced.
The hull sides will either be spot re-painted or the full hull may we done when she is up on the hard-stand in July/August this year.

In other sailing, Old Pete and I will be again sailing aboard the 42 foot Jarken, the Marloo in the Ransa Winter Wednesday series which starts on Wednesday the 7th of May. We are also sailing in the CYC Winter Series which started this last Sunday.

With the peak of winter now over the Hagar crew are scattered with Andy trooping around Australia with his wife and Ian missing this weekend. That left Rod and myself to organize the North Harbour Sailing Club's annual working bee. This big event was held yesterday and the weather was "special". We had a big role-up of membership and with Rod playing the co-coordinator we had a number of teams working around the Club as well as on the Clubs' rescue tender motor boat. At the end of the day there was a significant amount of tasks achieved. My job was to replace any rotten timber boards in the south and western walls of the club house. There were teams painting the inside of the club room, a team painting the outside walls following my work, a team which gurnied and then polished the club boat. A team who laid additional new concrete steps to access of the club. Later in the day the interior decorator team positioned and installed the old and new Club Honor Boards. The new boards update the list of past Club Champions which go back to 1948 when the club was formed. We now have a new board honoring those whom won National and World Championships. Big Tom ran the lunchtime BBQ and everyone were well satisfied. We had one female who is a new member who painted the outside of the club, supplied muffin cakes and finished off cleaning the kitchen.

It was a most successful Club Working Bee and we now have the Annual General Meeting to held in a few weeks.

Rod has the Hagar booked in with Middle Harbour for her annual slipping weekend and we have some weekends to finish off other jobs which include the painting of the decks as well as sanding and varnishing the inside timber work.

Looking forward to the season of 2015-2016. And where will the next 2016 Nationals to be held?

I read from the latest Afloat (August) that the 2016 Nationals will be held at Drummoyne in January.

Thank you for that information Pat. I was expecting the boys at Botany Bay to hi-jack the Nationals again, and while the sailing at Botany Bay would be better it is always a good thing to share the venue around to give the class good exposure and perhaps holding the nationals at Drummoyne will flush out more mooring minders.

This Thursday sees "Skipper-Childs" retiring from his work with the Federal Government. Rod was in charge of mail and records at a small military establishment near the big cemetery in Western Sydney.

It was his 65th birthday a week ago. Now while Rodney thinks he will have more time to go sailing, his SWMBO'd has decided differing plans for the hopeful skipper-childs, doesn't she know!

To start with he has been shanghaied to take SWMBO'd to a nieces wedding this coming weekend. Some women have no consideration at all, dontweknow? They know it was a sailing weekend!

We most likely will not race as I have pinched a nerve in my back and am struggling just to get out of bed in the mornings. And yes I have to loose 15 kilos.

Skipper Child's has again been shanghaied by his SWMBO'beyed and is now aboard an ocean liner sailing the China Sea with his misses and her friends. We have been corresponding via email and he reports that he is as bored as and demanding to know all the race result details from last weekends race at North Harbour. He is away for about five weeks and will miss at least two races. The other two Hagar shareholders are also missing and I have no idea where they are. We have been sailing with a scratch crew and managed to again beat Stewart on the Dumeresq by 15 seconds last Sunday.
Good to see that the Endeavour Nationals are to be held at Drummoyne and hopefully we will see a few more E30's and E27's for this regatta. Remembering that the waters of Drummoyne are more inland and likely the conditions will be a lot lighter than on the coast.
We will not be racing with Manly YC in their Friday night twilighters as they put the price up to $350.00 for the series and we will December 2015 to February 2016 be conducting our own twilighter races out of North Harbour, free for Members of North Harbour and about $50.00 for non-members. These races will be on Thursday evenings, I think?

Well hello Eccles,

We thought that you had given up on us and had gone to greener pastures. There is not much news, we are all getting older and both Andy Eaton & Ian Taylor, two of the four owners of the Hagar will not be sailing in the coming nationals at Drummoyne. So Rod & I are looking to recruit some new blood in the the forms of our two sons and their mates. The Hagar underwent some major modifications and fixes over the past winter and we are still not happy with her sailing performance. We need new rags. dontyaknow?
Last weekend Rod & I took the Hagar into the shallow backwaters of North Harbour and moored her in a shallow and sandy bottomed spot where we conducted our first dives using the new Hookah Diving Gear. It was all good if not a bit tiring and wet-suits are an encumbrance. We removed all the fishing lines about the prop and shaft as well as giving the bottom a wipe over to remove the slime. The only bit of weed was above the rudder and there was no coral.
Sailing at North Harbour has been awesome this season with all of the finishes being very close. We sacked the handicapper changed the system back to the old Olympic style. We now have the fleet finishing with in two minutes on the line.

News aboard the Hagar has been very quiet this season past with Ian about to retire leaving only myself in the land of the workers and paying taxes. But Ian will still be doing work on a few old clients.
Rod is busy working on the Hagar and the Club and has drawn up plans for a Winter Series of races. He plans to have one race per month from May to August on the last Sunday of each month. We look to have at least five starters at this stage. Andy is a difficult man to catch as he is mostly away traveling overseas, playing golf, bush walking etc.
We are planing to finish painting the topsides and then the upper hull this winter if we can find the time.

Has anyone seen Skipper Childs? Yes our Rodney is missing in action somewhere in South America. He was last heard of rounding Cape Horn and heading up the west coast of southern Chili in the Fiords, dont-ya-know?
He was scheduled to climb Marchupitchu looking for Incas but seems to have lost his way and course.
He is scheduled to return on the 28th of this month and will miss the race on the 28th at North Harbour. This is not a problem with the winning crew from the Swamp all keen to go.
Skipper Childs where are you????
Chris.
