PRIZE GIVING for the series is taking place after racing this Sunday at 5:30pm sharp at the YC. There is a complimentary drink for all crews, beach and on water support teams.
CHALLENGING and testing conditions in the ‘Princess Yachts Spring Regatta’ last weekend. Difficult to keep the boat moving in the sometimes glassy sea conditions. It can be painful, but there is no doubt its very good for overall sailing skills with the concentration, focus and teamwork required. Great conditions when the wind did pick up. Congrats to the Hobie winners in the Sports Cat section, also a big thank you to Bill and his team, for putting on such an excellent event on and off the water.
