Now 413 ... who said sailing was dead, well maybe at the 100 ft end ...

Anyone have some insight on which clubs are running which course areas and what the fleet breakup will be ?

Brilliant!, unfortunately could have been even bigger as some senior classes have withdrawn due to the lack of facilities offered (relative to the size of the fleet) all based at Woollahra and the alternate staging area at Balmoral. God I hope that they again also include St George SC next year as a venue, would have been well over 500 this year if it was an option.

Georges River wasn't it, not St George ? Anyway, Botany Bay is a greatly underutilised sailing area.

As a Woollahra member I am glad to be sailing out of the alternate staging area at Balmoral as Woollahra parking is a huge problem on any good summer day and the launching ramp is a known safety issue.

And next year, the NOR must include the alternate racing area ( ex Georges River ) in the first instance as I suspect some were turned off by the prospect of known issues ( parking , launching ) at Woollahra.

So is everyone catching a train to get there, or parking at Manly and sailing over?
50 boats at Woollahra would be a crapshoot for parking!

Balmoral is the place to be!!! All the room in the world for the Tasars and 5ohs, plenty of parking too if your wealthy enough!

Well done WM for organising and thanks to Ronstan for all the extra goodies for those of us lucky enough to be sailing out of Balmoral.

Not a big fleet of Tasars but it was a very strong fleet with really close racing and extremely close finish's.
