Fleet Base Perth - Sail Day Sunday 3 February 2019

Postby PearlHarbour52 » 06 Feb 2019 23:34

Sunday dawned sunny and bright but with some wind over Jackadder Lake which caused some problems with the boats sailing. Members attending were Andrew (HNLMS Tromp), Nigel (HMAS Toowoomba) and Bob Gilbert (Tug).

A small turn out but it was good for eveyone to catch up after a month away after the previous sailing day being cancelled due to the hot weather. A good mornings sailing.

Will Fleet Base Perth be sailing on the 17th of Feb?

If so where, as I have had an inquiry from a video journalist to visit .

Hi Mike yes 17th Feb is a sail day for us in Perth. The exposure would be welcome as our numbers here have been depleted some what over the last 18 months. We have a core group of 5 regular members and others that drop in from time to time.
Cheers Glen

Thanks Glen, Original message was:

Hello, I was wondering if you could confirm that the Perth members of Task Force 72 will be sailing their model warships at Jackadder Lake on Sunday, February 17? I am an independent video journalist with an interest in naval history, being an ex-sailor and public relations officer, and am keen to do a short video profiling the group and some of the ships your members have made. Cheers, Tim Slater

I will let them know.

Mike

As with most events in WA there is consideration and coordination with Australian Eastern Daylight Savings time. ;)
