Sailors pre­par­ing for weekend race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

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.
