here is the link to the
The OCTOBER Long Weekend Sep30-Oct 1-2
This is it! More than a regatta. It is the gathering of the CATAMARAN clan for a festival of fun, music, footy,
food and sailing all mixed in together. This is the 46th running of the Forster Wildcat Regatta.
Yeah- we’re all show-offs and addicted to speed. Give me a screaming reach and a Hollywood finish. Then
reload and give me some more. When the race is over I’ll race you back to shore flying a hull as high as possible.
Then turn up the music and let’s meet old friends and make new ones along the way- we’re cat sailors and
that’s how we do it! Fire up the BBQ and grab the deck chairs. The Sunday roast is on and the beer is cold.
We’re watching the footy finals, and music on the big screen all weekend. Meanwhile the kids are having a
great time runnin’ on the grass and playing in the water with their friends.
The Capulets are returning in 2017 to play on Saturday afternoon after racing and playing into the early evening
as the sun goes down.
The F18’s are also back for their round of the 2017-2018 Travellers Series. Everyone is in on the action and those
who are aren’t truly know that they are missing out on some serious fun and epic racing.
Let’s talk about today and laugh about tomorrow while the sun sets over the water. As I begin to re-hydrate I
think about getting out of the wet gear and heading for a hot shower. I can see hot pasta, those tasty Kranskys
and hamburgers lined up at the bar. There is more laughter than talk and I’m lovin’ it. I’ve been here two nights
and it feels like a holiday already.
