Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

CREW mem­bers are des­per­ately needed for boats en­tered in the Ad­vanced Alarms Mackay Whit­sun­day Off­shore Yacht Rac­ing Cir­cuit.

The se­ries, to be held on Oc­to­ber 5-7 is known as one of the tough­est chal­lenges of the sail­ing sea­son.

Lo­cal boats are look­ing for crew to join in this great ex­pe­ri­ence, and of course the so­cial events af­ter the rac­ing.

Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club sail­ing de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Tim Parker said the rac­ing will be tough, with up to eight boats from Mackay, try­ing to take the se­ries for their club.

“Any­one in­ter­ested in sail­ing should log onto the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club web­site and reg­is­ter on the crew avail­able page,” he said.

Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 5 will take par­tic­i­pants from Mackay to Ha- mil­ton Is­land, fol­lowed by a race from Hamil­ton Is­land to Air­lie Beach on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 6.

The fi­nal race will take place from Air­lie Beach to fin­ish at Bowen on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 7.

The event is a com­bined ef­fort be­tween the Cruis­ing Yacht Club of Hamil­ton Is­land, Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club, Mackay Yacht Club and the North Queens­land Cruis­ing Yacht Club in Bowen.
