We have reports on the Heemskirk East Coaster and Westcoaster, there has been a lot happening there.
And the news of the amazing field for the upcoming John Cootes Furniture A-Cat Australian Championships and lots of news from Nationals around Australia - from Lasers to Sabots and more.
After six weeks at regattas and races it will be great to be home in the Watagan Mountains this weekend.
On Monday we have the practice race for the 2012 A-Cat Nationals on our local pond, Lake Macquarie and on Tuesday around noon if you go outside and cup your ear, you may hear the sound of World Championship and Olympic medals clinking as possibly the world's best ever National event fleet faces the starter. Yes we will be there to bring you the news, the pix and the interviews.
