Woollahra Sailing Club (WSC) played host to the 2015 Optimist Teams Racing Regatta on Rose Bay over the weekend of 25th - 26th July. Team GRSC (Daniel Costandi, Ryan Ewings and Joshua Whitten), competed against 30 or so other sailors in 13 rounds of racing with a total of 52 races completed in good breeze, especially on the Sunday.
Very pleased to report that team GRSC finished 3rd overall with RPA taking out 2nd place and WSC 1st place. The boys learned a lot from this particular experience and the tactics and strategies required to succeed in teams racing. It’s a great event and one they enjoyed immensely as did the parents in support! Special thanks to Jamin Early who provided a theory and on water session for the boys the weekend before which was a great training experience for them.
As the Tackers and Green Fleet programs at GRSC continue to build momentum and grow, I am very confident that next year we will be able to enter in a second GRSC team into this event.
Thanks also to Melissa Brown (member of GRSC/WSC), for capturing and providing some great shots on water over the weekend.
