Over the weekend, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March, Southport Yacht Club sailors well represented the Club at the NSW Nacra State Titles.
Held at Trail Bay/South West Rocks, this was the first major regatta for the new Youth Nacra 15 fleet, with nine (9) Nacra 15’s competing at the regatta.
Congratulations to Chris Noyes and Joe Sabin, taking out first place in the F18 division, Warren Guinea and Mark Philips coming in first in the 5.8 division with Michael Guinea and Commodore Kerry Noyes closely following in second place and Ashleigh Swadling third place in the Nacra 15.
Trial Bay was a great venue for this Regatta. Racing was conducted straight off the beach with the campground adjacent to the old Trial Bay Gaol.
Saturday’s racing held winds up to 15 knots, with Sunday up to 10 knots and a South-East swell, making for great racing conditions.
All Nacra fleets were of good sizes, with competitors from as far away as Cairns and Townsville.
