Firstly, Congratulations to Nick Woodley and crew on Blaise Pascal for taking out the Spinnaker Division.
Congratulations needs to go to all eight HBYC boats that participated in the Beyond the Bay Challenge.
Beyond the Bay thank you! from Martin Vaughan
"Huge thanks to many people who volunteered their time to make the BTB overnight challenge a success. To Ray for his Director role and all his support team, to Neville, George and others on the radio, to Sally for the shirts, prizes and organising us all, to all the mentors especially those on the boats, to Hobsons Bay yc for hosting us, Lynda and the team catering and finally to skippers and crew who made the event. If we forgot others thank you too. ORCV is a great yachting community, see you on the water, hopefully for Latitude."
The first of our on-water events has been a great success. The sun shone, the wind gods were kind (if not a little exhausted toward the latter stages of the event) and the moonlit night made for great sailing conditions.
Congratulations to all participants - the feedback on facebook and photos indicate that much fun was had on the water and afterwards at Hobsons Bay Yacht Club.
Raft-up party at HBYC. Scott McDonald.
