Mark Murry and my two (Myah and Miles) competed on Sunday in the South Lake Macquarie Amateur Sailing Club’s 67th Annual Regatta. This was the second day of racing, but we only went on Sunday as the Northern Zone Sabot Association decided to make this day part of its heats.
Probably the most daunting part of this race for Myah was the start. The start wasn’t only for Sabots. You will see in the picture Myah having to negotiate her way though all the bigger boats, such as NS14, Lazers, Spirals etc. The advise Myah got before hadn was to hold back and let the bigger boats go. She had a great start and got away Nicely.
For many of you new to sailing taking part in a regatta away from Gosford will be a little scary, but when you belong to an association like the Northern Zone, you get to know all the other kids. The familiar faces makes it not feel like your away from your normal sailing club.
Here are some of the Pictures.
