Clubs to com­pete in an­nual se­ries

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE time has come for the an­nual three-day Whit­sun­day Off­shore Yacht Rac­ing Cir­cuit (WOYRC) se­ries, which will be held over the up­com­ing long week­end from Oc­to­ber 4-6.

The popular event, sup­ported this year by Ad­vanced Alarms Mackay, com­bines the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club, Hamil­ton Is­land Cruis­ing Yacht Club, Mackay Yacht Club and Bowen’s North Queens­land Cruis­ing Yacht Club, with mem­bers from all clubs en­cour­aged to take part.

Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club Com­modore Jim Hayes said ev­ery­one looked for­ward to join­ing in with the other clubs and sail­ing against dif­fer­ent yachts dur­ing the event.

“The WOYRC Se­ries re­ally pro­motes ca­ma­raderie within the re­gional sail­ing clubs and we en­joy work­ing with them to put on this great event each year,” he said.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing yachts will un­der­take three chal­leng­ing legs of the se­ries, start­ing at Bowen and fin­ish­ing in Mackay.

Boats will visit the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club in Air­lie Beach and Hamil­ton Is­land along the way. The boat with the best score from the three races will win the se­ries.

The No­tice of Race and reg­is­tra­tion forms are avail­able on the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club web­site or at the club­house and en­tries close on Fri­day.
