Winter series concludes

The Squadron's 12 race series within the Combined Clubs Winter Series drew to a close on Saturday 28 July. 57 boats representing RANSA, SASC, CYCA, RPEYC, and RSYS participated. Commodore Richard Chapman made the presentations the the Pointscore winners after racing and commended everyone on their fortitude in braving the cold and variable conditions.

Chapman thanked the volunteer race management team, 'Without your continued dedication and assistance each week, our Members would not be able to enjoy club racing.'

Congratulations to all those who competed and we look forward to seeing you next year. If you would like a bit more Winter racing, the 15 race series continues. Casual entries are welcome. Contact the RSYS Sailing Office here.
