Spent the weekend at Lake Macquarie, yes with the Heaven Can Wait regatta and yes we are biased, its our local charity regatta and we are on track for $40k for Mens Cancer Research and yes you can help us, the average donation is $30, so that is around 1250 x $30 so far every little bit help!! Go to www,

At the Welcome Dinner we discovered Tom Slingsby started as a pro-sailor, his sisters gave his 20c to stay on the family boat for the whole race and we discovered why Nathan is called George.
