Hi Seagullers, Another very successful day in Waitara, the day was a “ripper” with many old farts ending up with reddened solar panels, those with hair and hats faired a little better, what a great venue for a day event. Thanks to all who came and joined us on our fun day, you are the ones that make it all worth while. This year Graham was unable to take the boat out so our grandson Jamie stepped up and competed in his place. Thanks to all who helped us getting everything ready especially family, local friends and Paul who came and stayed to help out. Also thanks to Gavin and Judy Fabish (THE NAKI) boat, who kindly donated the prizes for placings, and worked tirelessly for us. We really appreciated it. Jan & Graham Simply Seagulls
