State Catamaran Titles Decided At Tanilba Bay

Lined up on the sand ready to contest the titles.


IT was very much a case of local sailors ‘scooping the pool’ at the state catamaran titles decided on Saturday 24 April on the waters of Tanilba Bay.

Taniba Sailing Club hosted the event after it was transferred from Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains.

Very little wind ruffled the sails for the two morning races but a south easterly wind kicked in for the two deciders after lunch.

The light flukey winds didn’t test some of the more seasoned sailors but locals Dave Young, Mike Colecliffe and Sam Breaden finished first, second and third respectively after the four heats were contested.

Some 18 craft vied for the titles.

Sailors from as far afield as Canberra, Batemans Bay, Wallerawang, Port Macquarie regularly come together for this event.

The family oriented club welcomes new members, particularly juniors who are taught the ropes by Sam Breaden on ‘Bic’ trainers.
