Fraser Coast RYC proudly hosted this Regatta at Hervey Bay. Even though the fleet was small there were some quality sailors chasing the title.
Weather all weekend was magnificent with clear blue skies, balmy temperatures and a fabulous mid to top of "A" rig breeze.

25 races were sailed over the weekend, with a windward, return course of predominantly 3 laps.
At the end of day 1 there had been 5 different winners, and the scores were pretty close. Day 2 saw Greg Torpy start to draw away, but not before Jimmy Mee fell away suffering from winch drama's. John Gower came through to second place at day's end.

Greg had eked out a reasonable gap to second place by 2pm, and it was decided to call an early finish to proceedings.

A very successful regatta and thanks to all competitors and club volunteers.
