Women’s Regatta Double Bay Sailing Club

35 sailors enjoyed great conditions at Double Bay Sailing Club on Saturday 3 December for the Women’s Regatta.

It wasn’t all about racing however there were some competitive sailors and some ILCA 4s and 6s on the water so some racing was a natural part. The racing results are Here.

There is more on this event on the DBSC site Here.

Jon West was on the water to cover the event. His photos can be seen and purchased from his web site Here.
