CBYA Veterans’ Regatta

On Thursday, September 28, the annual CBYA Veteran’s TOMS Regatta took place in Calpe.

Five veteran teams competed against each other, with five crew members on each of the RCNC-owned TOM racing yachts. The average age for each team entered in the Veteran’s regatta had to be minimum average of 65 years of age.

Wind conditions were light, but favourable, for the CBYA sailors, and three races were run over a short, twice round, windward-leeward course.

John and I were put on a TOM skippered by Dave, with experienced crew member José. Everything seemed so complicated –  I wondered what I’d let myself in for! read more →
