Sailors preparing for weekend race
THE Whitsunday Sailing Club (WSC) has a number of cruising events planned for the coming weeks as well as the Toohey’s two handed series this weekend.
This unique series will include a race on Saturday, starting at 11am, that will take yachts and their crews around some of the Whitsunday islands before returning to finish in Airlie Beach.
This will be followed by two races held in the bay around laid marks on Sunday afternoon starting at 1pm.
WSC sailing director Tim Parker said the Toohey’s two handed series was a challenging event with just two crew per boat and it was hoped that many of the Whitsundays’ top racing yachts would compete.
Entry forms are available at the club reception.
