Last season is done and dusted. We had an average of seven starters from nine boats, with four new skippers.

Winners included Club Championship to Velsheda, which is Greg Humphries, Paul Turner and Zac Molin, and the Season Point Score to Pointless, which is John McDougall, David Slingsby and Mark Robson. The Best Club Representative was Ivy, which is John Denton, Roy Leslie and Graeme Sheldon, for attending four major events.

Racing has been tight, with many races having a fleet time spread of less than two minutes at the finish.

We have ten Etchells for the coming season, so it will be tight on the course and in the race for the crane. We have arranged with Pittwater Fleet to sail in some of their offshore races prior to them hosting the NSW State and Australian Championships.
