Congratulations to everyone involved in a very successful 7 days of competition in the January GSC component, plus the Open Skiff  and 29er States in December

A special mention to Aiden Duthie who managed to win in two classes, The 29er Skiff and Windfoil.  Quite an achievement for a young lad who has just graduated from the Youth 29er program at SoPYC with great skills and enthusiasm for the sport.  Aiden was filling in for an injured sailor in the 29er.

Goolagatup Sailing Carnival Report

What a great 7 days of racing we have had.  Lasers had a good range of very light, medium, and very strong winds to challenge them and the Race Committee.

The Skiffs had very strong winds challenging their skills and equipment.  The young sailors in the 29ers were all still sailing hard tactical races in 22 knots, just under their wind limit.

The third day of the 29ers had very light 4 to 10-knot easterly wind to challenge their light air skills and strategy to round off a great event.

The concept of a sailor-friendly sailing carnival with minimal waiting times and similar boats racing together made for an exceptional on-water racing experience that was really appreciated by the sailors.

Full Results and Details are here

Windfoil and Kitefoil racing started in a very light session on day 1, but days 2 & 3 delivered outstanding 15 – 20 knot sea breezes for some high-speed action in the newest and most exciting foiling craft around.

Optimists States

Well done to our SoPYC Optimist sailors at their States over the weekend.  Special mention to Murray Duthie for taking out the Gold  Fleet first place.

Rumble in the Reach

Well done also to our sailors who competed in the Rumble in the Reach at EFYC.  Murray Duthie extended his stealer year by taking out the Open Skiff event.  Well done Murray, showing some great versatility in more than one class.
