    Its a 32km round trip. But the track is quite flat and the sailing is easy.

    At the LMYC there are places to lock up the bikes and get onto a boat for the wednesday races. I can get you on a yacht with no previous sailing experience.. I've been sailing down there for 4 years and know the old boys down there well.

    The race on wednesday starts 3:00-4:00 (depending on your boats handicap) and finishes 5:30-6:30pm depending on the wind and course.
    The sailing is free of charge!

    The fernleigh track back at dusk is always a good ride.

    Things to bring:


    * Money: only for contributing to the sailors if you drink their beer on board
    * Water, snacks (sailing club sells snacks, but we will not be stopping for a meal, so eat before starting )
    * Bike lights: it may be dark when we finish.
    * Reflective cycling gear for road cycling if you need to get home by bike later
    * White soled trainers (eg dunlop green stripe) are preferred on the yachts.
    * A lightweight jacket : it can get chilly!
    * Suncream: we will be outside for 6 hours)
    * A hat preferably with a wind clip (so when the wind blows it off, it wont go in the lake)
    * Lock for bike


    A dry bag should not be necessary.

    I did this last Wednesday and it was a great day out. Hope others can join for next week.
