Family Cruising Jim Walsh
Elliott 7's are descending from Albury, Griffith, Canberra and Sydney for the Elliott 7 National titles, held in conjunction with the Batamans Bay Anzac weekend regatta. With several previous Australian champion boats with new owners competing it will be a quality fleet.

Class stalwart Peter Barter said 'Its great to get back to Batemans Bay, it is a beautiful place to sail and the pentstar course is unique, sending us to five buoys around the bay, the weather looks light so will be a good test of our patience.'

With active fleets in QLD, ACT, NSW and WA the Elliott 7 provides great one design sportsboat racing around the country.
