With an early September start to the season, RSYS has already conducted four Saturdays of racing. Eighteen boats competed for the highly competitive, three-race Mini Regatta. David Chapman and crew in ‘Foolhardy’ won the day from Doug McGain and Mick O’Brien’s ‘Ciao’, and then Michael Bellingham in ‘Avalon’.

To date we have 30 Season entries, with more expected on return from the Queensland States and the Hong Kong Worlds.

This side of the New Year, the Sydney Fleet has planned Coaching Sessions from some of the best in the World. Mothy Jarvin will be talking on what it takes to be a top Etchells crew person and once again Tom King will be offering his expertise, both on and off the water.

We urge all to join us on Sydney Harbour for the Milson Silver Goblets Regatta from Wednesday January 27th to Saturday 30th, 2016. The format is a race each evening starting 1745hrs on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, then with three races on the Saturday. Visitors are most welcome and we expect to once again have a fleet of over 40 boats.
