Great success for BLiSS 2019

The 2019 editions of the BLiSS regatta was held at RBYC on Sunday April 28, 2019. All of us at the Club were really pleased to see 24 boats on the water representing yacht clubs from all around the Bay.

The 2019 editions of the BLiSS regatta was held at RBYC on Sunday April 28, 2019. All of us at the Club were really pleased to see 24 boats on the water representing yacht clubs from all around the Bay.

Three windward/ leeward races were run, followed by an informal but lively presentation in the RBYC Olympic Restaurant.

Congratulations to Henrietta McRae and her crew on Dragon Lady for winning the Associates’ Cup, awarded to the first RBYC boat on PHS handicap, as well as the overall BLISS trophy.

Thanks go to Race Officer Lou Hutton, the RBYC race management team and volunteers, sponsors and staff for making this such an enjoyable event.

Di Pearson has written a great article about the regatta, which we highly suggest to go and read. You can find it at the following link:
