Event 5 NACRA SEQ Super Series- Big River Sailing Club Clarence River.
Last weekends event at Lake Cootharabah saw a big rollup of NACRA's including 9 5.8's with 2 former national champions duking it out for supremacy of the fleet -the way I see it the score at the moment is Venom 1 Trucking 0 .
The next event in the SEQ NACRA SUPER SERIES is the Bridge to Breakers Regatta at Clarence River. For those who haven't been there before the Big River Sailing Club hosts the event from their club house on a grassy bank of the Clarence River (up stream from Yamba).
Format for the weekend is a long race to the Breakers at Yamba and back to the club. Sunday is a number of round the buoy races.
Start time Saturday is briefing 12.30 pm and race commencing 1.30pm.
The club has some of the best grounds for camping with lush grass (well it was last year) right up to the sandy banks of the river. Full catering is also provided with some great home cooking on offer.
While the club is in Northern NSW it is surprisingly close to Brisbane now that the Ballina bypass is now open.
Congratulations to the winner of last weeks Lucky Sail Draw - Lex Statsburg (5.8 from Cleveland) .
Once again we will have a Super Series Lucky Sail Draw with a $50 fuel voucher up for grabs. To win the prize you must have sailed in the regatta and a current member of the Nacra Association (you do not however have to be at the draw - if you need to leave early). If you name is drawn and you didn't attend the regatta the draw will jackpot at the next round of the series.
