Port Phillip Women's Championship Series
A big congratulations to Monica Jones on Salamander III for taking a clean sweep of the Port Phillip Women's Championship Series. The team were able to take the trophy on PHS, IRC and AMS without getting wet for the last race, after the RBYC Lady Skippers' Race was unfortunately cancelled on Sunday due to high winds. Well done also to Celia Dymond on Jungle Juice for placing second on PHS and IRC, and third on AMS.
RMYS was the winner of the RBYC BLiSS Teams Trophy, for the largest number of competitors in the BLiSS series and the training events. We may also be in the running for other series trophies for PPWCS, thanks to the great performance and high participation levels from our club. Congratulations to all who sailed.
The presentation for the PPWCS will be held on Friday 27 May at RBYC.
