This Week in Sailing 1/11/2021
What a huge weekend of racing with both Club racing and the annual Bridge to No Bridge regatta plus a large number of our sailors at away Regattas.
Bright and early Sunday morning we had 20 eager Junior Fleet sailors, who have recently finished the Tackers 3 program at Oxenford and learnt some new skills at Hollywell (mainly our tricky tide). They all had a great time and we can’t wait to see them again next Sunday.
Bridge to No Bridge – Saturday and Sunday (sponsored by Wymark Sirius)
The annual Bridge to No Bridge was a fun event, both Off the Beach Cats and Keelboats raced up to Dux and Saturday, camped overnight and raced back to Hollywell on Sunday.

Off the Beach Dinghy Passage – Sunday
With so many away regattas, there were only 6 starters in the Passage racing this Sunday, a steady 14 knots greeted our keen sailors.
A huge thank you to our race management and volunteers for a wonderful weekend, you outdid yourselves!
