Newcastle CYC Laser Friday Twilights Start 9 October
Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club Laser fleet races on Newcastle harbour on Friday nights during summer. Their season starts on 9th October 2015. During daylight saving the Laser races are from 5.30pm and are usually finished by 7.30pm, or sunset, at the latest.
The fleet has grown from three boats five years ago to more than 20 each race. With the races being at the end of the week, there’s a casual but competitive atmosphere with everyone heading over to NCYC bar afterwards for a beer or “Laser burger”.
The club has built a launch pontoon off the end of one of its piers to give easy access into the harbour. The fleet has experienced phenomenal growth over the past three seasons due to the relaxed atmosphere, location and timing of the races. During daylight saving the NCYC races are from 5.30pm and are usually finished by 7.30pm, or sunset, at the latest.
Come along and enjoy the sailing and the après-sail scene and find out how to construct a “Laser burger”.
