Koonawarra Bay 14ft Cat Regatta - RESULTS


Recommended Posts

G'day all,

What a great regatta this turned out to be! This was the 12th running of the event and probably the best so far.

We had 30 boats (a record - previous best was 28 - twice), comprising:

6 Arrows

3 Maricats (all Cat Rig)

7 Paper Tigers

14 Windrushes (2 Sloop, 12 Super Sloop)

This event was used as the 2005 NSW Windrush State Titles.

The quality of the fleet was top class, with all classes represented by their current State Champions! There were also past State and National Champions as well as numerous who had placed well at this level. This has often been the case at this regatta, but this year's event was particularly well represented. As such, we have even more excellent data to use for our yardsticks.

Despite a forecast of drifters followed by a 30 knot front, we had near perfect sailing conditions all weekend, ranging from 5 to 17 knots, generally in the 10-14 knot range.

Koonawarra Bay is on Lake Illawarra, just south of Wollongong, NSW. Competitors travelled from as far away as Port Macquarie (about 7 hours drive), Griffith, Wagga, Lake Macquarie and St Georges Basin.

Many thanks to all the competitors and families who participated. Thanks also to those involved in the organisation of the event. All efforts were greatly appreciated.
