The fifth annual Seawind Moreton Bay Regatta enjoyed some fresh conditions this year with a 15-20 North Easterly blowing the fleet of a dozen Seawind catamarans around the Bay, to the thrill of all the owners and crew onboard.

The weekend long event, hosted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron at Manly Boat Harbour, attracted boats and crew from around the SE Queensland region for three social races around the bay finishing at Canaipa on Russell Island with approximately 50 crew enjoying a BBQ presentation party on the Saturday night.

Seawind Catamarans also brought cruising adventurer, Lloyd Price of Seawind 1000 'De ja vue' for a special presentation of his travels on Friday night. Lloyd had a packed crowd of over 70 people listening closely to his tales of sailing from the Gold Coast to Greece onboard his Seawind 1000.

At the presentation party on Saturday evening, another special guest arrived after circumnavigating around Australia solo onboard his Seawind 1000XL. Brian Midgley had just arrived at Morton Bay after his year long adventure around Australia onboard 'Truansea'.

Many fantastic prizes were awarded on Saturday night by Saewind, but the winner of the event was Alan & Kat Tasker onboard his Seawind 1160 'Talisker'. Second place went to Warren & Debbie Kerswill onboard Seawind 1160 'Phase Two' and Andrew and Aida Stevenson took out third place onboard Seawind 1000XL 'Black Diamond'.

The Moreton Bay Regatta is the last event of the year for the Seawind Cruising Club Series that also travels to Pittwater (Sydney), Jervis Bay, Botany Bay, the Whitsundays, the Abrohlos Islands (WA), Catalina Island (USA) and Mexico. Next year more events are planned to be added to the calendar including a regatta in Melbourne.
