On a fantastic Autumn weekend, Parkdale Yacht Club on Port Philip Bay, put on a fantastic event. There was plenty of sun and wind greeting the thirty young competitors. Racing on Saturday consisted of two sessions of three races in a 10-18 kt SE breeze.

Showing great form in the morning/afternoon sessions was the current U13 Girls World Champ, Kristen Wadley (Qld) having six bullets closely followed By locals Jack Challands and Ethan O' Brien with Jazz Agius-Jones (Qld) making the top four. With the occasional 20+ kt wind gusts coming through the race course in the afternoon the Bics were flying over the course in balls of spray giving the spectators a great view of the planning abilities of the Open Bic,there were plenty of smiles on shore at the conclusion of the days sailing....
