Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

SAILORS from the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s (WSC) off­beach di­vi­sion are back from con­test­ing the Sail Townsville North Queens­land Sprint Re­gatta.

The re­gatta at­tracted more than 60 boats over the week­end of Oc­to­ber 4 and 5.

Com­peti­tors en­joyed near per­fect con­di­tions, with the en­tire re­gatta sailed in 15-20 knots of wind.

WSC off­beach sailor Luke Mairs said some fan­tas­tic re­sults were achieved by the Whit­sun­day sailors over the week­end.

“Aaron Lin­ton skip­pered a team to a con- vinc­ing vic­tory in the Taser class [and] in the Ar­row cata­ma­rans, Daniel Townsend sailed a solid re­gatta to earn a well de­served sec­ond [place],” he said.

Mairs, his brother Tris­tram and fel­low WSC sailor Sean O'Rea­gan, also made the jour­ney to Townsville, sail­ing their Lasers through­out the week­end.

Ac­cord­ing to Mairs, Sabots were the largest fleet, in which Daniel Mo­ran achieved an im­pres­sive sec­ond place, amid tough com­pe­ti­tion.
