2017 Nationals Results and Photos
Our 38th Australian Minnow Championships finished with an evening presentation event at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron. The room was filled with the families of the 89 kids who took part in the championship, it was a fitting end to what has been a superb regatta at a beautiful venue.
Congratulations to all who took part and all those who made it possible including BYS and their terrific staff, our race officers Philip Beattie and Andrew Little and their teams, all the sponsors of the event, to the MSA committee members and families for all the work that happened mostly behind the scenes, to the teenagers who were mentors to the novice kids, to Shaun McKenna and Russell Bates for their photography, the measurers and to our BBQ chiefs.
