Here it is, the one you have been waiting for!
Video highlights of our 2016 Pittwater to Coffs Harbour race, includes dolphins and sunsets for those not interested in yacht racing. Not to mention a crackiing sound track, I reckon I have watched it 999 times!
Other than the annual antifoul which we know we are going to do every year, all the rest really all started with a radio. Last year we lost our bluetooth UEBoom speaker overboard in the Sydney Bluewater which begged the question, wouldn't it be good if we had a Bluetooth Stereo....
We have hit our end of season break and given the boat will be out of the water for repairs, upgrades and engine maintenance over the next few weeks, I know there are a few of us that are wondering what to do on Saturday mornings until racing kicks off again in September.
How do you get a nickname? Our watch captain and light air magician Dave might well find himself with a new one after yet another masterful performance early in the Pittwater to Newcastle race. David “Copperfield” Walsh called tactics off the line in around 2 knots of true wind to get us away in a fantastic position early in the race.
The Sydney Harbour Regatta was good to us last year with a race win and second in our division overall. We were pretty keen to get back there and go one better this year. Unfortunately it was not to be, what we didn’t expect was all the breakages… read on to find out about the good the bad and the broken at the 2015 edition of Middle Harbour Yacht Club’s fantastic annual regatta.
