During the month of November a series of 3 Club Races were sailed.

There were 12 boats entered but many boats were still carrying out improvements and many did not sail all three heats. Overall winner was Ark a Flying Fifteen sailed by Dave Bennett with 12 points, followed by Phobia a Spider22 sailed by Marc Read with 15 points. In third place was a great result for a new boat and crew to the club, Starship a Corsair F24 sailed by Ivan Lebedev with 18 points. In a close forth was Raw Prawn a Flying Fifteen sailed by Andrew Marshallsay with 19 points. The wild storm on 21 November caused some havoc at our O’Sullivans Beach Hardstand with a few boats upended by the strong winds but fortunately only minor damage was caused. All eyes are now on the next Club Championship races on 8 and 15 December which will be hotly contested.
