GSC Legends Regatta A Legendary Success
What a day. Over the weekend GSC held the new and exciting ‘Legends Regatta’. The Legends regatta is a special event held to celebrate our long-time GSC ‘Legends’. These five individuals include Lenny Walpole, Kevin Mitchell, Lawrie Eddy, Bill Bowry and Ron Thompson. This year was the first time the event was held.
The breeze filled in throughout the day and by the 2pm start a consistent north-easterly sea breeze came in. Many sailors took part in the event, with multiple classes sailing in the regatta. These included sabots, optimists, flying 11’s, lasers, NS14’s, MG’s, 16ft Skiffs, Fireballs, Yachts, Magic 25’s and other mixed fleet classes.
A big thanks to our regular race-crew and volunteers who helped out. Full results can be found at:
