Sailors head to Ti­na­roo

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

IT WAS a great long week­end for lo­cal off beach sailors who trav­elled to Ti­na­roo for one of the four ma­jor off beach re­gat­tas on the North Queens­land rac­ing scene.

Ti­na­roo Sail­ing Club on the Ather­ton Table­land pro­vided an idyl­lic lake­side set­ting for the 65 dingy and catamaran sailors who took part.

Ju­niors rev­elled in the strong winds in open bics and Sabots while the youths from Yacht­ing Queens­land's pro­gramme “pathways to ex­cel­lence” were im­pres­sive in the rac­ing. The se­nior di­vi­sions com­prised A class and Nacra Cata­ma­rans, Lasars, Tasars, 29ers ,505's Feva 100's and RS Feva's.
