Three-day sail­ing se­ries ahead

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

A NUM­BER of Whit­sun­day sailors are pre­par­ing to con­test the an­nual Ad­vanced Alarms Mackay Whit­sun­day Off­shore Yacht Rac­ing Cir­cuit (WOYRC), this com­ing week­end.

At this stage four yachts from WSC are set to com­pete against two from Hamil­ton Is­land and four from Mackay. The three-day course will take com­peti­tors from Mackay to Hamil­ton Is­land and on to Air­lie Beach with a fin­ish in Bowen.

Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club sail­ing di­rec­tor Tim Parker said the WOYRC se­ries was a stand out event on the club’s cal­en­dar, not only be­cause it was a chal­leng­ing race, but be­cause it also united lo­cal sailors with those from the Cruis­ing Yacht Club of Hamil­ton Is­land, Mackay Yacht Club and the North Queens­land Cruis­ing Yacht Club in Bowen. En­try forms are avail­able via www.whit­sun­day­sail­ing­club.com.au.
