Opti's Shine at Sunshine!

by Jilanne Littlechild

 

A large contingent of Opti sailors from several sailing clubs in NSW and the ACT descended upon South Lake Macquarie Amateur Sailing Club for a weekend of fun. 

Special thanks to the SLMASC for opening the doors of their family friendly Sailing Club and also to the club volunteers including:  Lanee and Adam Beashel for organising a fabulous event; to the Commodore Phil Evans; Karen Newman and her canteen helpers; Diana and Peter Charlton who helped with the camping among other things and last but not least the race committee including Andrew Newman, Doug Blackstock and RO Jeremey Atkinson.

There was plenty of sailing and other water sports for the Opti kids and their families to enjoy. This included jetboat rides by JetBuzz. Bytes supplied by Chris and Laura Caldecort and Bic windsurfing and SUP, thanks to David Green for towing the trailer and the demonstrations and tips.

The Regatta would not be possible without the generous support of the sponsors. Thank you to Zhik and Northsails for fabulous prizes. Also SailingScene for providing a bacon and egg breakfast, for all the competitors.

 Placegetters at the event were spread across several Sailing Clubs.
