Whats on @ SBSC
Lake Boga Report
What a huge turn out this year at the Lake Boga Yacht Club Easter Regatta. Around 30 competitors from SBSC made the journey to “Boga”, sailing in as many as seven different classes of boat! With light winds all weekend, our representation has had a lot of time to study the course from the shoreline. The sunrise’s have been amazing! The weather has been very warm! The nights have been full of stories by the campfire.
Congratulations to Ross & Natasha Martin - 2nd Overall in the Tasar Class and Bill Manning - 2nd Overall in the Sabre Class. Well done to all the SBSC competitors, looking forward to next year already!
Keelboat & Tower News
This year we are very keen promote and foster the ORCclub measurement system that is being utilised more and more at yacht clubs across Port Phillip Bay. The aim is to have enough boats measured so that we will be in a good position to introduce and publish results for this new system in the 2021-22 Summer Season.
