Our 2016 East Coast Championship was sponsored by NB Sailsports this year. The regatta was HUGELY popular, with about 120 sailors competing....and thank goodness it wasn't scheduled for LAST weekend during the East Coast Low! The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club hosted the event this year and with their plentiful staff of very capable volunteers, the regatta ran quite smoothly. Thanks to everyone that helped out and to the race officials that kept things moving on Saturday and Sunday.
