Sunday 22 May
The first race of the RMYS Two Handed Series was cancelled due to lack of entries. The next race will be on Sunday 26 June.
The inaugural SYC Commodore's Challenge was started on Sunday morning with five competing clubs; RMYS, SYC, RBYC, RGYC and MYC. Unfortunately only one race was completed before the northerly became too strong and the race committee called off the event. The RMYS team finished second in Race 1 and was leading the second race before the abandonment, which looks promising for the resail day on 31 July.
The RYCV Phoenix Trophy (Queenscliff to Williamstown) was also cancelled due to strong winds. This event would have been the final event in the 2015-16 Port Phillip Women's Passage Series, which has been a great success this year. The organisers have great plans for both the women's harbour and women's passage series next year, so look out for more updates soon.
