Over 30 multihulls from Pittwater, Sydney, Lake Macquarie and interstate will contest the RMYC Broken Bay based series starting with the optional ocean race on Friday 30th September, followed by four inshore races on the Saturday and Sunday. Current forecasts show a strong breeze on the Sunday providing a spectacle to crews and spectators as these speedy machines tear up Pittwater.

The Racing Division will include number of fast trimarans and catamarans, including Sean Langman’s recent purchase of the 60 foot trimaran KAS, Melbourne Grainger cat Mad Max (Tony Considine), locals Indian Chief (Darren Drew), Voodoo Spirit (Doug Cuming), Quickstep (Jason Geddes), Lukim Yu (Robin Ottowa), Scud (Kurt Ottowa), Twiggy (Michael Finch), Zorro2 (Alan Brand), Rapid Ride (David Bishop) and Dash (David Renouf). Lake Macquarie regulars, Foxy (Shane Russell) and Louie the Tri (Paul Nudd) will also join the rest of the racing fleet consisting of mainly Corsair and Farrier trimarans.

A number of cruising multis, including several Seawinds, will be joining the Cruising Division to race and improve their sailing skills without having to fly a spinnaker. A social programme includes the Seawind sponsored dinner on the Saturday and the Presentation Dinner on the Sunday. After the racing, the RMYC Bar will be the place to meet old and new friends and to swap stories of the day.

A launching ramp is located close by and parking is available for trailers. A berth or mooring can also be provided by contacting the RMYC on 02 9997 5511.
