A FUN 2017 CBYA Regatta!!

Categories:

Well, I have been asked to write a brief account of our amazing annual (FUN) regatta.

It really is an amazing event. It mixes total sailing novices with sailors who are only novices on TOMs, novices with spinnakers, experienced racers who actually know the rules, together with people whose reaction to, “one of your tasks is gybe, gybe, tack, gybe, tack” is ”WHAT?!!” (one skipper, who obviously had done this before, raced to the stern and swung the boom backwards and forwards to great effect).

But that is the joy of this event. It really is hilarious, but competitive, with great sailing content and hopefully, learning opportunities for all, whatever your experience level.

Palma Vela – The crossed fingers didn’t work……

Categories:

Simply out sailed – out classed. But what a fun event. Our team of ‘weekend warriors’ weren’t at all phased to be mixing it with some of the world’s best sailors, but afraid we didn’t do well. Not making any excuses as we made a few mistakes, but with the ORC rating we were placed in Division 1 where our competitors were typically 40′ or more, meant it was tough mixing it with them over such short courses.
