Welcome to Bucklands Beach Yacht Club

Tuesday night racing (summer series)

Much better racing than expected last night the breeze filling in on que! Our first windward leeward course was perfectly set and just the right length- thanks to Peter, Ross and race committee.
It was fantastic to see the smaller keelers coming out to play, would love to be able to organise their own division/ courses etc for post Christmas so lets keep the numbers growing guys- if anyone needs support or crew let us know.
The club after race was again well supported, at $5.00 per plate the food was great, race footage from the committee boat allowed us to re live a very aggressive start and the results were right on time at 9:30.
Congrats to Perfect Alibi (open) and Bandicoot (restricted) for both taking the double. Once again Limerick missed out, this time on the $50 Bunsco Voucher (guys you need to get back to the club!) the redrew went the Cynosure (again!). Mazerka took the jackpotted $60 worth bar and food vouchers- enjoy.

See you on the water next week.
