Once again, YRSA sponsored the Bliss Regatta, by way of paying for the lead-up training, which was much appreciated by the competitors.

After input from a number of clubs and discussions with sportsboat owners and with the ASBA, we have spent a lot of time programming the AMS database to accept sportsboats.
The main reason behind this is the desire by owners to sail in club races. It is our belief that this will be beneficial to both the number of sportsboats being used and to the participation in SMS events. It will allow Owners more opportunity to use their boats and once they are out of the garages and on the water then the Sportsboat numbers could increase in all areas.
We are already getting queries from Owners wanting to rate for club events (even no spinnaker racing). A new "mixed fleet" is currently measuring in Queensland.
Good luck for the new season.
There were some 20 boats weighed, including some entering the large Melb - Osaka fleet.
A big thanks to all involved and our friends at Hydralift Cranes
Check out this great video by Ian McWilliams - thanks Ian !
