Sail Sandy Regatta 2014

Sail Sandy Regatta 2014 - 06/05/14 02:06 AM

Hi Guys,

The Sail Sandy regatta will be held on October 18 & 19 at Sandringham Yacht Club. For many years, it has traditionally been a monohull regatta. I have contacted the club, and this year they have decided they will be inviting cats too. (The amendment is to be released in the next few days).

We need at least 6 boats to enter to make this happen.
Here is the event website: http://www.syc.com.au/regattas/sail-sandy-2014/
Note: the ammendment has not yet been posted.

Who is interested? We already have 3 - Matt, Daniel & I.

Regards,
Tash

That's right - I thought, if they can be invited, why can't we!

Hey its not a big enough state to have ends, surely you just all get your heads together anytime grin

But seriously, I might make it to Sandy if we have room to rig up and it's not too expensive sick You guy's sure you want to sail with spinnaker? Allways seems to be a windy weekend and the seastate is a challenge in that area on its own crazy

At this stage we would like to do kite but we can make a decision on the day. Entry is quite cheap I've heard.

Spinnaker for sure, if we can, it would be a great place to advertise the mosquito, especially if the vipers are going to be there

What is the cost? I see cats will be located at Hampton club next door, will we be using their facilities as well?
Posted By: Matt_Stone

Re: Sail Sandy Regatta 2014 - 07/03/14 11:39 AM

Cats will be based at the beach beside Hampton and sandy yacht clubs (this is a much bigger launching area), and storage overnight will be decided closer to the time. Most likely we will store the boats in the maintainance yard which is secure.

Sandy has change rooms and showers in two different areas, plenty of space.
Cost is $55 if you enter before the cut off date - Oct, otherwise its the standard $70. You don't have to pay yet though, just get your name down on the entry list!

Sail Sandy will be a great opportunity to show that the mosquito is alive and kicking, we want to promote the class at this regatta as it will have sailors that will be moving out of junior classes and looking at boats that offer a challenge and provide excitement.. what better place to showcase mosquitos as a stepping stone to the olympic nacra17
So if at all possible we want YOU…

I'm presuming you girls and boys are sailing Mk1 with Spin?
Posted By: Matt_Stone

Re: Sail Sandy Regatta 2014 - 07/11/14 10:05 PM

well we have to be fair, if non spin boats turn up we will sail without kite as we need numbers 6 or more, unless we have 6 non spin and 6 spin no problem. I will decide on the day what i will be sailing. Depends on how many boats and wind factor. i perfer to sail with kite.

Hi Tash,

Good article; did you have something to do with writing that?

My only criticism is that it may be a little deceptive showing photos of mixed multihulls from other events - if one didn't know better one might think they were at Sail Sandy.

I had a look at the history of the Club - interesting to see that they started out with cats.

Hi Greg/Debra,
No, I had nothing to do with the article.. seeing as they have never had cats at sail sandy, they had to get photos from other events. I don't see any issues with it, at least it is promotion for the mozzies & other multihulls.

Sail Sandy is this weekend coming. Who else is thinking of going? Looks like nice weather.

The entry list is interesting. 185 entries but of these I only count fifty or so "grown-up"s boats. That's a huge number of junior sailors.

What's launching and boat storage like there with 185 boats or more? Is there that much room?

Hi guys, I do have a lot on my plate at the moment, if 3 or more go, I'll go

Hi Guys,
Boat storage for cats will be at hampton beach - next door to the yacht club. Have a look on the syc website regatta page for a map - they usually clear out most of the maintenance yard, to make plenty of space.

I will be running the chandlery on the Saturday, so if you need any bits and pieces come to the shop and I will sort you out.

Re: Sail Sandy Regatta 2014 - 10/14/14 02:11 AM

So if it's only the cats launching from the beach on the NE side of the pier then it shouldn't be too crowded for us (although it looks like a long drag over sand from the parking area). I was a bit worried about launching with 180 monohulls.

I can make it and Matt is on provided enough Mozzies turn up. What about Simon, Nic and Daniel? Anyone else?
