Sail Sandy 2017
Over the weekend Sandringham Yacht Club hosted their annual OTB event, Sail Sandy. It was fantastic to see that BYS was well represented across most classes. All classes on Saturday managed to get 4 races in with winds turning light on Sunday. With a slight postponement, everyone got out on the water to complete another 4 races. A fantastic effort by all involved to get 8 races completed over a weekend.
Congratulations to Ethan O’Brien who finished 2nd in the Laser division, Hamish Cowell who finished 2nd in the Open Bic’s. Once again BYS was well represented within the Minnow fleet with Sam Backwell finishing 1st and Sally Danks 2nd.
