Hive of ac­tiv­ity over Easter

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club (WSC) was a hive of ac­tiv­ity over the Easter long weekend, with 60 off-beach boats par­tic­i­pat­ing in the club’s Easter Re­gatta.

Around 150 sailors, friends and sup­port­ers at­tended the three-day event, with many people com­ing from as far afield as Mis­sion Beach, Townsville, Mackay and Kep­pel Bay, to join lo­cals from the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.

The re­gatta in­cluded a new di­vi­sion called the ‘green fleet’, which con­sisted of younger sailors com­pet­ing for the first time. Also rac­ing were all the usual classes, in­clud­ing op­ti­mists, sabots, tasars, lasers and cata­ma­rans.

Lo­cal sailors in­clud­ing Dan Townsend, Ai­dan Gum­mow, Tom Sharpe and Ryan Tarver all sailed par­tic­u­larly well.

At the end of the re­gatta, club of­fi­cials con­grat­u­lated all com­peti­tors and thanked the many people who par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual event.

READY TO LAUNCH: About 60 boats took part in the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s East- er Re­gatta over the long weekend.
