Welcome to another (on-time) issue of Tell Tales!

This month’s issue is packed with exciting news and reports, plus some interesting articles from the world of sailing. You can download it here.

This month we’re excited to announce a NEW Cruising Series for the coming membership year. In 2012-13, we’ll be stepping up the cruising arm of the club with fun coastal races to locations in the Bay of Islands and beyond, with prizes for podium positions, plus BBQs and other fun stuff for family and friends on board.

We’re actively looking for a new key sponsor for this series, and also someone to lead the Cruising Series – if you are interested in either role, please let us know! Just email info@opuacruisingclub.co.nz or talk to a committee member.

Worried about winch servicing? There’s an article in this issue that will guide you through your first winch service, and hopefully make this messy pain of a job just that little bit more bearable.

Plus there’s an interesting article on seasickness with the results of a survey by Yachting World – essential reading for all those ‘Mal de Mer’ sufferers out there.

And finally, don’t miss the ‘Pizza in a Pan’ recipe at the back of this issue – an easy-peasy and totally yummy alternative to oven-baked pizza for those of you who, like me, don’t have an oven on board!

Enjoy this month’s Tell Tales, and if you have any stories, pictures or feedback, please let me know at helen@optimalcopy.co.nz.
