Sandringham Yacht Club Winter Series 2014 - Multi-Tasking!

by Chris Furey on 25 May 2014
Sandringham Yacht Club OTB Winter Series 2014 - Multi-tasking Study while sailing - Study notes taped on crewmates back Sandringham Yacht Club
Sandringham Yacht Club Winter Series 2014 - We blokes have no idea about Multi-Tasking but these girls certainly do. Cadet skipper Zoe was faced with an important test at school on Monday but wanted to go sailing in the Sandringham Yacht Club winter series on Sunday afternoon.

Problem: How to combine yacht racing and study?

Solution: Easy - just duct-tape study notes in a plastic sleeve to the back of crew Eliza's lifejacket for easy reference throughout the afternoon... and go racing.

Pure genius!
