HBYC Club Champs won by Megafreight!

Megafreight continues its winning streak by winning the Jan 2010 Club Champs. Some may remember they also recently won the PHRF Class 1 division in the FBYC Intasure Spring Regatta. Well done to them! Are we going to let them win anything else?

Team Megafreight receiving the trophy!

After postponing the event in early November (blown out) - it was held in 23/24 Jan 2010 in perfect weather although conditions a bit light for sailing. However five races were completed allowing a discard for each entrant. It was fantastic to see ten local boats on the water, and a generally high standard of racing. There was great support from the sailors in respect of prizes donated, and willingness to help. Along with the Friday night draw, this was one of the busiest and most memorable weekends at the club in a long time. Bar takings were the highest in a long time!

Photos to come. See the Sailing Noticeboard for results!

South Africa's Premier Club Sailing Trophy!

Chris Sutton receives the beautiful large scale model of an historic Danish Sailing Ship from Dick de Kroon, on behalf of HBYC and the Wed night sailors. This ship will grace the club and be used as the (non removable) floating trophy for the annual HBYC Club Championship Sailing Regatta.

Valued at about R20k, this is probably the most impressive sailing trophy in the country!

Many thanks to Dick and Janet!
