Event Report – 2018/19 Tally Hobbs Regatta

The Flying Fifteen fleet from Royal Freshwater Bay YC and South of Perth YC joined forces for the Tally Hobbs Regatta held on Swan River over the weekend of 17 – 18 November. The regatta attracted 16 boats racing a 6 race series in ideal light to moderate winds.

Racing kicked off on Saturday afternoon with 3 races held using windward/leeward courses on quite a tight race course in Freshwater Bay in front of the Royal Freshwater Bay YC clubhouse in a cool S/SW breeze.

Two former world champions racing in different boats got caught out in race one by being called OCS. They were Dean McAullay crewing for Philippa Packer and Grant Alderson with Evan Moore as crew. This allowed Hamish Carnachan and Peter Mudford (RFBYC) to chalk up their first win from Emily and Kristine Pettersson (SoPYC) a well sailed 2nd.

Tally Hobbs – Chris Paterson Does It Again…

For the second successive year, Escalator, skippered by Christopher Paterson (with Ed Repsevicius and Graeme Lillingston as crew for the different races), has won the Tally Hobbs Memorial Regatta following the final 4 races sailed on Sunday March 22. Various weather orientated websites had predicted some very difficult conditions but the reality was a variable south-easterly that occasionally got to around 12 knots and kept the 15 boat fleet tight and entertained. Full results for the Tally Hobbs series can be found here.  Congratulations to Chris.
