The briefing will be at 10.30am and the start at 11.00am. This event is a long distance race around buoys between the "Butchers Gap" Drain south of Kingston and the "Blackford Drain" north of Kingston. The full race includes 3 laps and about 75 kilometres. The race is designed so any number of laps (25 kilometres per lap) can be completed and there are prizes for each lap. The Club will offer an early lunch on Saturday and a Club tea to relive the days events. Kingston is 3 hours south of Adelaide in South Australia. The next town south of Kingston is Robe and the biggest town close by is Mount Gambier. Kingston is on the coast at the southern end of the Coorong and sits in a sheltered bay that is protected by a reef several kilometres out to sea. The Conditions are usually small chop and a south westerly sea breeze between 10 and 25 knots.
