Queenscliffe Maritime Weekend March 28

Mercedes III and Serifa attended the March 28 Queenscliffe Maritime Weekend and participated in racing with the Couta Boat Fleet. Both vessels sailed in company till a West/South channel divergence. Their skippers and crews were made most welcome by the organisers and reported the event as a must do for next year.

Our member Richard Hart with brother Mal on the helm, took out Division 1 line honours with their C2014 Jocelyn, recently built by Tim Phillips. Richard reports he’ll work on a Cup Regatta appearance.

Two good reasons for our Classic fleet to participate in the SYC event.

  1. Show support for our SYC based members, particularly those who race after race make the sail up from SYC to be with us for the 10:30 am race start.
  2. Tune up event prior to the first race of our May 3 2015 Winter Series.

Last year all those who competed, in spite of the rough sail to SYC, reported the favourably on the event. Phil tells us he can organise pre-race tie ups and says SYC extend a welcome to the Classics and encourages skippers and crews to join with them in the post race BBQ and trophy presentation.
