  1. Great, thanks - just found it. Hope to make it there. I have let the other Weta's know about it too
  2. Hi guys Any info available about this race? I have looked at the Facebook page so far. I have a Weta trimaran - could I come and join in? I am hoping to do either this race or Batemans Bay regatta, depending on a few things. Cheers

From a performance point of view, if it is breezy we usually match or beat the best fireball in the fleet and beat the others. If it is light, the fireballs beat me and I finish a bit ahead of the NS14's.
