Saturday 16 May
Regis Aged Care are back on board as a sponsor of the JH McDonald Series for the 2015 Winter Season.
Saturday had 5-8 knots of breeze from the south, which kept the fleet moving around the course nicely. Twenty-seven boats made it to the start line.
Astarte took out first place and Mrs Overnewton won the best start on 1 second.
Thank you to Tony from Regis for coming down and presenting prizes.
