Brass Monkey Regatta June long weekend

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

Toukley Sailing Club is again running their Brass Monkey Regatta June 9 - 11 and all off the beach boats are welcome.

 

NOR and Accommodation list at http://www.toukleysailingclub.com/index.html

 

This year we have got $2000 in prizes and the Canteen will be open for Lunch on Saturday and Breakfast and lunch on Sunday and Monday.

 

For those that don't know yes we have some shallow weed to cross (approx 300m) to get the race area but once in the race are you are 2m of weed free water. The race area is a large open lake with only low hill off in the distance so come and help me show the others you don't need a training hull(I am one of only two mono sailors in the club) to have fun.

 

 

regards,

Arie

I've been a few times, been v windy or just perfect (for me) - fantastic Winter weather in Oz (often the same temp as the UK summer!).

 

Shallow weeds not generally a problem, just a bit of peace and quiet before you get to the racetrack. Can be a challenge for boats with fixed rudders though (as one IC found a couple of years back).

 

Even in a Westerly the breeze is quite consistent.

 

Hope to be there (complete with "training hull"!).
