A fantastic weekend of Sailing at the 2022 Goolugatup Sailing Carnival held at South of Perth Yacht Club. Congratulations to all of the Optimist Sailors who competed, it was a massive two days of sailing! The morning session on day 1 proved to be very challenging, testing all of our sailors with shifty conditions, the afternoon gusting to 24 knots. This was followed by no wind on Sunday morning with 18 knot gusts in the afternoon.
A fantastic experience for all of the optimist fleet with lots of lessons learnt with our sailors being able to adapt to the changing conditions. Nine races were competed over a huge two days of sailing! Thanks very much to SoPYC for hosting training sessions for all of the optimist fleet leading up to this regatta. Congratulations to all of the optimist sailors who competed!
