More stories and pics to come, but the short answer is the Black Prince of Sandringham has taken it from the “Young” Sydney Fox with the Canny Scott third.

What that means in plain language is Dave Suda 1st, Steve Girdis (NSW) 2nd and Doug Watson (SA) 3rd.

Performance handicap was won by Dave MacKay from Cronulla, our own Stephanie Strong took out second in the Sidetracked youth boat and Steve Girdis was third.

All the racing was held on Saturday only with 4 races sailed in medium to very light winds.

The highlights on Sunday were Luke Mathews making it to the lunch table at the club for his first major outing after his terrible accident, sadly he didn’t see any racing as the weather closed down the regatta with high winds – so no racing and third, the stage show that is the prizegiving with intro speech by the irrepressable Doug MacGregor (VicPres) and the brilliant John Neville doing the raffle draw – well you had to be there !

And 27 boats and around 135 people were there !

All gone sailing  - 27 boats !
