AWKR 2022

After a 2 year break due to Covid , Australian Women's Keel Boat Regatta (AWKR) was run last weekend in some pretty cold and miserable conditions.  Hosted by Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron and the 30th time the regatta has been run, with competitors from every state capital city vying for the booty.

The Saturday and Sunday both had winds in the high teens and gust up to 25 knots, and being South Westerly’s the sea state was choppy with 2mt waves at times.  The Monday being much lighter requiring a change in gears from the previous days conditions which proved problematic for some in borrowed yachts.  Arriving and sailing a different yacht to that you practiced on or race regularly at your home club is a real challenge in itself and a real credit to all competing.

The two divisions of 24 yachts in total battled it out with some very tidy sailing skills and in most cases a battle with Mother Nature as well as competitors. Div. 2 also had a sub group of S80's competing for a prize.

Lots of broken gear, 2 MOB's and a few lost halyards. Lots of social mixing back at RMYS each night with food and wine thankfully supplied by great sponsors. The camaraderie was brilliant with all the women quick with advise and help when needed.  Luckily a very clean regatta with no incidents requiring a hearing in the room thank goodness.

I loaned 2Xtreme out to a group of fabulous sailors from Middle Harbour in Sydney who sailed her extremely well and led Division 1 all weekend and came home with wins in Div. 1 EHC and ORCc with a second in AMS (only 2 points difference in the last race) .  I delivered 2Xtreme up last week and returned today (Tuesday) and fully understand how cold the last two weeks on the water has been.  A little bit of coaching on the boat and some hints on local conditions was sought from me but the women really did the girl (2Xtreme) proud on their own.

AWKR 2022 RS

I’m very proud to be a sponsor of this very important regatta and hope it continues to get bigger and better every year.
This is a regatta that deserves a warmer time of year to be run to showcase both the talent and the importance of  women's sailing and it’s inclusiveness, fingers crossed for a date change next year or following.

SBSC only had Sue Turnbull flying the flag although sailing with the Darwin team this regatta.  Hopefully we can get a club team together in future.
