by Puerto Galera Yacht Club on 19 Feb 2011
Racing at Puerto Galera www.pgyc.org
Puerto Galera Yacht Club would like to invite you all to this year’s Easter Regatta at the PGYC from Friday, April 22 to Sunday, April 24. There will be free mooring on a first come first served basis from April 21 – April 24. As always, our racing follows a pursuit racing format which has us doing staggered starts and hopefully finishing about the same time each day making for some interesting and crowded finishes. Perhaps someone can top the 360 degree roundup at the finish line which was a main highlight of the All Souls Regatta last year? Each night we host an awards ceremony at the clubhouse, have a few drinks, eat some great food and have a good time. We hope to see you all there.

Vendee Globe- No tethers in Southern Ocean?
I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness while racing in the Southern Ocean. Take a look at this pic of Seb Josse racing in the Vendée Globe. He is in the Southern Ocean sailing in rough seas and I imagine he is hitting speeds in the mid-twenties. I know what it’s like to sail down there. I have done numerous Southern Ocean transits and I know it to be an unforgiving region. So I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness. Interesting.
