Imperial Yacht Club was well represented at the first points series regatta of 2010. We had nine entrants in the Dabchick class, of which six were in the top 10!  The conditions changed each day, with the course being reset at the last minute on Saturday. The conditions started off mild, but built up to a fresh to strong Southerly by the afternoon. Fortunately the wind subsided by the evening and parents and sailors could relax ... . Thank you to the parents who joined in the camping and supporting the sailors. Also thank you to Hermanus Yacht Club for putting on a well organised event.


Lowell and Eamonn Jooste (10th) and Lance and Cole (11th). Well done to the crew for braving the long hours on the water and some cold conditions.


Congratulations Timothy Manley (1st), Kevin Foreman (2nd), Jeremy Foreman (6th), Marc Wilson (8th), Luke Dixon (9th), Danford Jooste (10th), Christopher Theime (11th), Connor Jooste (16th), and Luke Sher with crew Mathew Broekuizen (17th).

Optimists B fleet

Three brave novices dipped their toes in the water and took part in their first full regatta. For Mathew Thorburn (1st), Calvin Gibbs (2nd) and Lee Gibbs (3rd), it was the first time they had been on the water with a full fleet of competitors. Although the first race was confusing for them, by the second race they were well on their way and sailed almost non-stop for the rest Saturday and Sunday.
