RACING ON THE BAY STARTS AGAIN FOR MANLY COMBINED CLUBS.
The 2022 season for Combined Clubs yacht racing has begun and runs from February through to November.
There are 11 races with 5 divisions of boats including Performance Divisions 1 & 2, Cruising, Trailer Sailer and Multi Hull.
Participants come from:
Royal QLD Yacht Squadron,
Wynnum Manly Sailing Club,
Trailer Sailer Club of QLD,
Multihull Yacht Club of QLD,
Qld Cruising Yacht Club,
Moreton Bay Boat Club, and,
Newport Sailing Club.
The aim is to get more boats out enjoying racing on Moreton Bay and to unite the love of boating and make it fun for everyone. In 2021 we had an average of 41 boats sailing at each race and this included 2 races where we had over 60 boats racing.
To put that into a people perspective, we had an average of 256 people crewing on the boats and in one race there was a massive total of 434 people out enjoying yacht racing on Moreton Bay.
Every race has a pre-briefing and results are presented after every race at Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club. Catching up with other participants, to relive the action and celebrate over a drink and a sausage is a great part of the day
