The summer sailing season is upon us and on Sunday September 23 ten Flying Fifteens ventured out from South of Perth Yacht Club for the preseason regatta.
The racing was a lot closer than the AFL Grand Final the previous day with 5 races held in the morning in typical very light Easterly conditions followed, after lunch, by the final 3 races in a much more civilised Westerly. Thank you to the start and mark laying teams for some great work in testing conditions.
Philippa and Dean ( El Toro) from Freshie won the regatta by 1 point from Greg and Lillo ( Spot the difference) while Plonky steered Second Breakffast into third with Russell. It was great to see a couple of newer fleet members participating. Welcome to Mark Walters, Kate Edwards and Natalie Waddell.
