A Sail Pass must be purchased for each race and provides the non member with the correct insurance cover for the race.

Saturday: Range Series race 4

A windy day saw only 1 race run, it sounded like it was fun for those on the water and a few wind blown faces turned back up at the bar foe a well earned beverage. Special thanks to the volunteer David Gordon, Greg Blackwood and Stephen Hopkins who were out on DIV 1 course in Albatross See Results HERE
