Rain does not de­ter sailors

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

TOR­REN­TIAL rain wasn’t enough to stop the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club off-beach sailors on Sun­day, as they took part in the first of a three-week se­ries.

In fact, WSC off-beach sailors have a lot to look for­ward to, fol­low­ing the ap­point­ment of in­ter­na­tional race of­fi­cer Ross Chisholm as the new sail­ing of­fi­cer at the club.

The up­com­ing Easter Re­gatta, to be held dur­ing the Easter week­end from March 25–27, is an­other event to which club mem­bers can look for­ward.

Sailors come from through­out Queens­land in dinghies and cata­ma­rans and the event will in­cor­po­rate the North Queens­land Sabot Se­ries and North Queens­land Laser Cham­pi­onships.

A spe­cial green fleet event is also be­ing or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with the Port Deni­son Sail­ing Club in Bowen.

Young sailors will com­pete in a round-robin event in the WSC Club-owned Opti Tacker sail­boats.
