Club is bank­ing on new off­shore tro­phy

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club has ex­tended a warm wel­come to Bendigo Bank, which has come on board this year as spon­sors of the Off­shore Se­ries

Rear Off­shore Com­modore Kevin Fog­a­rty said it was never an easy task to se­cure lo­cal spon­sors “and the club is ex­tremely proud to have th­ese guys as a new part­ner”.

“With a new spon­sor, the great thing is the club will also have a new Bendigo Bank Off­shore Tro­phy, with the se­ries to run through­out the year,” he said.

The first race un­der Bendigo’s name will be held this Satur­day, with a race around the is­lands start­ing at 9am.

The club has a choice of 10 cour­ses for the week­end races and the de­ci­sion on where the com­peti­tors will go will be made on Fri­day ac­cord­ing to the weather fore­cast for the day.

Skip­pers are all in­vited to a briefing on Fri­day from 7pm and there will be a pre­sen­ta­tion af­ter the race on Satur­day at the club.

Mr Fog­a­rty said he hoped some of Bendigo Bank’s em­ploy­ees would be keen to come down and ex­pe­ri­ence the fun of sail­ing dur­ing the year.
