Three-day sailing series ahead
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.
