Off-beach se­ries re­sumes Sun­day

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

AF­TER an ex­tended break for Air­lie Beach and Hamil­ton Is­land Race Weeks, the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club off-beach rac­ing re­sumes this Sun­day with two races, with the first race start­ing at 2.30pm.

The races are the fifth and sixth of the win­ter se­ries and Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club sail­ing de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Tim Parker said the club is hop­ing to have as many off-beach boats as pos­si­ble.

“If you have an old laser or ho­bie in the back­yard gath­er­ing dust and leaves, drag it out and join in the rac­ing,” he said.

To take part in the event, please reg­is­ter at the sail­ing club’s regis­tra­tion desk.
