Western Region Regatta + Vic Vs SA Cat Challenge


Recommended Posts


Rivoli Bay S.C.

Leake St.

This is a regatta that is incorporated with the Western Region of Victoria Sailing Clubs.

Being located central between Adelaide and Melbourne it is a great opportunity to get the two states competing. The Cat Challenge is to get the two states to fight it out on the race course to see who has the best fleet. Plus to have a whole lot of fun sailing and socialising with interstate sailors.

Thanks Catsailor for the sponsorship and support. We also have sponsorship from Ronstan and Fosters Group, so the prizes will be fantastic to win.

There will be a good spread of prizes so not just all the hotshots will go home with trophies.

Thanks to Catsailor.net for donating the Perpetual Cat Challenge trophy which I'm sure will be fought over with enthusiastic rivalry between Victoria and Sth Australia.

The aim of the weekend is FUN FUN and some seriously fun racing.

Hope to see you there and please let us know if your coming for catering.

Heaps of wind 15 boats turned up only a vic 420 went for a blast on Saturday in heaps of wind we watched from the clubrooms while Brad skippered what a blast. I went out on my 5.7 along with Marc Attwood on his 5.7 today, we blasted around in plenty of wind, it was pretty unsailable really but the local WIN news camera team turned up so they went in the rescue boat. Don't know what footage they would have got because they couldn't keep up and we couldn't slow down hopefully will be on Mondays news. We only lasted for 30 mins and came back exhausted got some great vid on Marks camera so hopefully that will go on you tube soon. SA Won the challenge vic only got 1 dinghy out to our 2 cats. Thankyou Nixon junior for the sponsorship of the event and keep up the good work with this site
