Metros Lane Cove 12′ Skiff SC 8th & 9th March
The Metropolitan Championship is on the 8-9th March at Lane Cove 12 Foot Sailing Skiff Club.
The racing will be out in the open area between Hunters Hill Greenwich and Balmain. Our RO Col Chidgey identifies it as Mocooboolah which is the aboriginal name for the area around Hunters Hill and means “meeting of the waters”.
There is plenty of room for good Laser racing. Fleets of up to 50 and 60 yachts from Drummonyne, Greenwich Flying Squadron and Balmain regularly race here. There have been 12 footer’s Interdominion and 16 footer’s Nations on the same stretch of water. There is fantastic spectator viewing over the race track from Clarkes Point Hunters Hill.
Rigging will be at Lane Cove and if you like lots of space at Hunters Hill Sailing Club. Registration and beach entry will be at Lane Cove 12 footers Club as will the presentation ASAP after racing on Sunday. There will be a sign on and off sheets at Hunters Hill Sailing Club on Saturday and Sunday.
Don’t forget to come to Lane Cove 12 Footers for the presentation and sausage sizzle after racing on Sunday.
As an extra encouragement for sailors to rig at and enjoy the hospitality of the Lane Cove 12′SSC the club is running a dash for cash starting at 12.45pm on Saturday at the Lane Cove Club and finishing near the Metros start line. There will be prizes for this and of course the main event. Metro prizes will be awarded for Open, Youth, Women and Masters categories.
Come along and enjoy the racing and support the Laser sailors at Lane Cove. These folk are some of the keenest Laserers around attending Masters State National and Worlds in numbers.
