Thanks to everyone who attended our 75th Opening Regatta over the weekend.
We were lucky enough to have the Commodore of the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia Jacqueline officially open our season on Saturday followed by a sailpast but unfortunately no racing could be completed due to a dying breeze.
Sunday however was a different story with the first of 4 races starting in 8-10 knots and then coming in to 20-25 by the third race. By the time the fourth race commenced half the fleet had decided they’d had enough and watched the remainder battle it out in close proximity to the shore for all the spectators at times.
Thanks to Simon for the little video and we’ll post some photos in the coming days.
Thanks go to the visitors who travelled up and we look forward to seeing you again next year (bring your friends 😉) ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for the lend of the boat Carol. Thankyou to the blokes who came out on the rescue boat to check that I was ok, after I poked the top of the mast into the bottom of the lake.
LBYC, You put on a good show. I had tonnes of fun
Great video! So nice to see everyone again!
Great video. Can’t wait to return to Lake Bonney for our classic dinghy weekend in March
