2018 PLBC – Westernport Laser Regatta.
Due to the Westernport Challenge being held over to then coincide with our Laser Regatta, the sailing committee decided to reschedule the Regatta to the 4th of February. This inevitably reduced the fleet we would otherwise have had if sailed earlier in January with no clash. However great racing in moderate winds resulted in a great regatta, appreciated by all who participated. Some very close sailing at the front of the fleet.
Thank you to the Somers YC for bringing over their start boat and some of their expertise. Great to see some Flinders participants as well. Thank you to the Sailing committee at PLBC for their organisation and those that volunteered for the safety boats and the tower. It was great to see the club come together to ensure a successful Regatta.
Live music & refreshments on the deck after the race on a beautiful evening was a pleasant way to wind up the Regatta
