Ballina Regatta


Recommended Posts

Hope you Nacra 4.5's can make it to Ballina this weekend. 16th and 17th February.

Long race up the river and back - briefing at 12.30pm. Dinner in the club for $12.00 per adult. 2 races on Sunday. Caravan park across the road and motels about and some members have spare beds if needed.

Hope to see you there- everyone welcome. We need some more competition for the Nacra 5.8's as well... .. We have to show those NS14 sailors that we can rustle up a crowd too..

Thanks to all the crew at Ballina for the warm hostpitality and fierce competition. You guys through everything at me including strong winds, tidal flow, sand banks and cable ferries. But in the end I was beaten by some talented Nacra 4.5 sailors. Maybe next team I can challenge you on home turf (moreton bay or southport).

Are you guys attending the NSW state titles in March? I'll be there on Barry's F18.
