The first day, Saturday saw four races completed in a fresh south easterly, resulting in numerous capsizes & minor breakages. On the Sunday, the weather was more moderate and another four races were sailed in a light south easter, favouring our lighter crews. Congratulations to all our sailors.

Caleb, the Sailing Academy Team Manager did well to pull all our young sailors together, It was great to see the camaraderie within the group. This was especially evident at the end of the regatta, where it was the Academy sailors that dragged the three ZVYC safety boats to there respective garages and then went and thanked Craig Leslie, their Race Officer as a group. In the Inter Club competition, TSC finished joint third with MAC.
