Ian Holly Memorial Regatta - Toukley


Recommended Posts

Just posting this info again here. This would be a good regatta to attend as practice for the 30th Anniversary State Titles held at Toukley Sailing Club. There is also a bonus that the winner of the Maricat Division will get the prize of free entry to the State Titles and their Association membership paid for the season... ZAX will certainly be in attendance for that one ! Many of you may remember Ian Holly who was a keen 14ft cat sailor who unfortunately past away during a regatta at Terrigle. this regatta is organised by one of his sons, Andrew, to keep Ians memory alive.

Hello sailors! The Ian Holly Memorial Regatta will be held next weekend at Canton Beach. Details as follows.

Hope to see you there, Danny

The regatta went well with 3 races in moderate winds on Saturday and 2 races in lighter winds on Sunday.

A fleet of Hobie 16s, Paper Tigers and Miscellaneous 14s sailed.

On Sunday morning we were fortunate to have Darren Bundock give a tuning workshop for the Hobie 16s and for the Maricats.

The competitors enjoyed the weekend so much that it was decided to make it an annual event.

Hope to see you all there next year !
