Revived Safety Bay regatta resounding success
Safety Bay Yacht Club hosted its first regatta in more than a decade on the Australia Day weekend.
The Sunsmart 65th Anniversary Regatta was a resounding success with about 40 boats competing over two days of competitive sailing.
New club commodore Anthony Saw got the events underway, sending three fleets onto the water.
A multihull fleet (Windrush and Hobies), a monohull fleet (Lasers and Mirrors) as well as a junior fleet (Pelicans and a JD) competed against each other.
Competitors enjoyed the glorious ocean sailing and ever changing wind conditions of Warnbro Sound.
The Friday afternoon invitation race was blown out with the sea breeze measuring more than 25 knots, gusting to more than 30 knots.
Permission from the City of Rockingham was granted for those travelling to camp at the club.
