In­vi­ta­tion to the Great Whit­sun­day Fun Race

Whitsunday Times - - SHAG ISLET YACHT CLUB -

A SPE­CIAL divi­sion could be on the cards if 10 or more boats from the Shag Islet Cruis­ing Club (SICYC) en­ter this year’s Great Whit­sun­day Fun Race.

The Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club has ex­tended an of­fi­cial in­vi­ta­tion to mem­bers of the SICYC to join in the spe­cial event on Satur­day, Au­gust 16.

WSC com­modore Jim Hayes said all SICYC mem­bers were wel­come to dress up their boats and crews “and if there are enough en­tries, [the] Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club will form a spe­cial SICYC divi­sion in the race”.

Mr Hayes said 10 SICYC boats would be enough to war­rant a divi­sion, which he thought would be a great fea­ture of the race.

“All SICYC mem­bers who take part in Fun Race will be el­i­gi­ble for all prizes and we will also give out a spe­cial prize for the SICYC fleet,” he promised, adding that the win­ner would be judged “by se­cret means”.

SICYC founder and ‘Vice Com­modore’ of Raby Bay, Ken Thack­eray, said Fun Race was ide­ally suited to mem­bers of his club.

“They’re a com­mu­nity of fun-lov­ing peo­ple, which is the essence of Fun Race and they al­ready have cos­tumes de­signed for the SICYC Ren­dezvous, so ev­ery­thing’s ready to go,” he said.

Regis­tra­tion for Fun Race will be held at the Whit­sun- day Sail­ing Club on Fri­day, Au­gust 15 from 5-7pm and Satur­day, Au­gust 16, from 910am.

The af­ter party, fea­tur­ing Cap­tain Mor­gan give­aways, race pre­sen­ta­tions and plenty more fun, will also be held at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.
