Wrist bands will be issued at Registration and are to be used to sign on and off. Alternative sign on and off by SMS is available for the convenience of sailors rigging away from the club. To use SMS sign on please advise at Registration and then each day send an SMS to 0477 647 537 with the words ‘sign on’ or ‘sign off’ and then the sail number or numbers.

The Welcome and Presentation will be in the Alfresco area lower level at the Salamander Shores. These will be finger food events.

The Masters Dinner will be three courses and will be held on Sunday from 1900 hrs in the Driftwood Room at Salamander Shores. At Registration we would like to know the number of people who will be coming to the Sunday Dinner.

The very first Australian Masters Golf Tournament will precede the regatta on Thursday 11 February at the magnificent 27 hole Nelson Bay Golf Club.

If you are intending to play, and have not done so already, please advise Rob Lowndes (text 0419 266 257 or lowndesr@bigpond.net.au) straight away so we can ensure we have enough tee times.
