Good day,
Just wanted to give you an update on the activities of the NYC for the past couple of weeks.
The racks for the Optimist have been built!!  We are in need of carpet scraps to place on the racks to protect the boats while loading and unloading. Any thoughts on how to source this, please let me know.  We are planning on moving the Optimist to the racks on Sunday 14th Feb. 
The building for storing the sails, boards, rudders, life jackets, etc. has been built.  Storage arrangements for these items has not been completed nor designed.  Any one with ideas on the best way to do this is asked to contact me as soon as possible so we can complete this portion of the project.
The labour building these was strictly volunteer (Ok, maybe the promise of beers and laughs) and could not have been completed without the following persons:
Tony George
Lee Hales
Eddy Williams
Miles Denne
Tom Fernau – a frequent visitor/businessman and supporter 
Frank Ashley
Robert (Rob) Hoddson – guest at Oualie Beach Resort
Peter Tantram
Ian Gonzaley
Thanks again for their experience, assistance, muscles and tools!!!  We did have some laughs (and a few beverages) too.
I have attached a couple of photos of the weekends activities.
