OCTOBER 2013 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

We hope this newsletter finds you all well.

As the summer season draws to a close and we officially get into the Winter Sun season we are still experiencing amazing weather conditions, temperatures reaching between 25 - 30 degrees Celsius!

On the 27th of October the popular St Raphael Marina and Yacht Club organised the Autumn Regatta. Over 15 boats participated in the race, which started at 12:00 hrs with the start and finish line outside the St Raphael Marina. The competition came down to a nail biting finish seeing ELISAVETTA take first place with a time of 126.24 mins, ARIS taking 2nd place with 126.97 mins and AQUANDA taking 3rd place with a time of 130.78mins.

The winners were congratulated at an award ceremony, which took place after the event at Sailor's Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant.

St Raphael Yacht Club celebrated the end of the season in style with a buffet dinner at Sailor's Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant in the St Raphael Marina, the event was enjoyed by all who are looking forward to next season.
