Successive wins hand Midnight Rambler the CYCA Trophy Series

After winning Race 1 of the CYCA Trophy - Passage Series yesterday, Midnight Rambler, the Ker 40 owned by Ed Psaltis, Bob Thomas and Michael Bencsik, backed up and won again today to claim Division 1 victory from Tony Kirby’s brand new Ker 46, Patrice, which comes from the same design stable as the victor.  

Following Saturday's ideal 14-20 knot winds, the fleet was at the mercy of very light and shifty winds, which covered all points of the compass and varied from 3 knots to around 6.5 knots. These conditions forced officials to shorten the original 19 nautical mile course at the top mark, set eight miles off North Head, after the fleet started the race near Shark Island. CLICK HERE TO READ FULL STORY

Commodore's Christmas Message

Dear Members,

On behalf of my fellow board members I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a safe and Merry Christmas and a prosperous and happy New Year.

For those competing in regattas over the festive season, good sailing and good luck.  For those sailing south in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race I would like to wish you and your crews a safe and fast race.  I look forward to seeing you on the start line and in Hobart.

Yours sincerely

Howard Piggott
Commodore
