The Christmas Cup, incorporating the Old Fart’s Dog’s Bowl Trophy and Veteran’s Cup was run at MHYC on Saturday.
The course took a dozen boats up to Manly before heading down the harbour and around Fort Denison. With around 200 small boats racing in the Sail Sydney Regatta it made a for a very busy day on the harbour. Compliments should go to Mortgage Choice Rumba and Shibumi for standing by to assist and manage MHYC traffic after a collision between an East Sail chartered Beneteau 40 yacht and one of the Manly Ferries saw a couple of sailors in the water.
Kayimai won Division 1 ahead of Stormaway and GOGO, with Kestral taking out Division 2. The Veteran’s Cup was won by Keith Le Compte on White Pointer for a boat over 30 years old. The prestigious Old Fart’s Dog Trophy for skippers and yachts with a combined age of 90year+ was given to a very happy Ken Krone on Kestral.
