War & Peace – Stefan Marcel

Sea Hawke – Jerry Brown

The races started at 1300 with only 3 knots of wind from the SE, flat seas and sunshine. About 30 minutes into the race, a light SW sea breeze prevailed (7/8 knots), giving all entrants a lovely afternoon of sailing in the sunshine for 2 to 3 hours. After the race finished, all competitors headed back to the marina, where a BBQ and drinks for 80 really topped off the day. Brendan and Rebecca did the presentations for both divisions, followed by the overall result and the announcement of the 2011 winner of the Beneteau Bugle.

Another great day at the CYCSA!

Congratulations War & Peace!!
