Combined Winter Series off to a successful start!

Saturday 6 May was the first day of the Combined Winter Series hosted by RANSA, SASC and RSYS. With 90 boats competing across six different divisions, Sydney Harbour was quite busy as sailors flocked to the water to enjoy the warm sunny conditions. Temperatures reached 26c with light to medium N/NE winds which stabilised after midday just in time for racing. The day was very positive with strong turnouts and competition across all divisions. There were 10 more boats competing this year compared to the same time last year when there were 80 boats for race one.
