southern shore of this lake.

Wind Forecastá - Windguru Forecast for Wilderness
GLYC is in its annual mid-winter break currently, but members are still welcome to come and sail, esp. if its warm. However, at this time of year, there isn't much wind (unless there is a cold front passing thru' - but then its too strong!)
Racing is scheduled to resume on 21 August, with the Frostbite series, which continues on 28 August.
The Opening Cruise is scheduled for 4 September.
For Laser sailors, something to look forward to is Laser National Championships. This event was originally scheduled to be held offshore, Port Elizabeth.
However, there is a problem between ABYC and the Ports authority and ABYC can no longer host the regatta. It is now to be held on Swartvlei Lagoon, from 1 to 4 October.
This will be very convenient for all our local Laser sailors!
