MOFSC Rear Commodore of Sail Report

Week of 28th March 2016

Halls Head Classic / Point Robert Return

The weekend of 19/20th March saw MOFSC host the Fremantle Sailing Club’s Halls Head Race (Saturday) and the Point Robert Return race (Sunday). More than 30 sailboats competed, with Nyari (Lance Rock), Scavenger (Warren Blay) and Dynamic (Laurie and Maddie Flynn) representing MOFSC.

On Saturday’s race down, Scavenger took out third place in the Division 1 YAH competition and Dynamic also took third in the Division 3 IRC competition (2nd across the line). On Sunday’s race back, Dynamic scored third place in both the Division 3 IRC and YAH competitions.

The best news overall was that MOFSC once again defeated FSC in the Sailing Team event – so well done to Scavenger, Dynamic and Nyari and their skippers and crews!

Our club also put on a great Saturday night in the galley and then cooked over 100 brekkies on Sunday morning. The feedback from the FSC sailors and Race Officers has been fantastic – particularly the fireworks! Most miraculous in my opinion is how we managed to squeeze an extra 30 boats into our marina. A great big tick and thank you to all those involved.
