It's finished. A once-in-a-generation upgrade to the facilities at WARC.
All the elbow-grease, sweat, more than 400 days and seven Government departments in approvals, setbacks and contractors and it's finally there.
This isn't the official thank you note. This is just the start of them. There will be emails, celebrations, recognition of all the people who carried stuff, moved stuff, cut bits of white plastic, spent days in the water, donated money and time, or did all the crazy auxiliary things which cropped up from time to time.
It's a huge year for our little club. An Olympic year (more on that later) with what looks like a strong WARC contingent heading to Rio, a new set of school programs that is kicking us along, and now this new game-changer of a deck.
It's a good time to be a Westie.
