The SYC Commodores Challenge commenced in 2016 as a female only regatta which aims to promote competitive one-design women’s racing in Port Phillip Bay. In this regatta Commodores from around the bay are invited to select their best team of female sailors to compete in a competitive one-design racing event on SYC’s Beneteau 7.5’s.
RBYC one again enthusiastically entered the competition with a team of 5 young female talents: Laura Harding and Laura Thomson, VIS 49er sailors who recently competed in the National Sailing League, Ella Grimshaw and Chloe Fisher, also VIS 49er sailors, and Kate Jenkins.
#teambrighton will be facing 7 other teams from all around the Bay, so rest assured competition will be fierce! They will be accompanied and supported by Club Coach Adrian Finglas.
The regatta will be held Sunday May 19, first warning signal programmed for 10.00am. If you get a chance, definitely get down to Sandrigham Yacht Club to check out the action. 😎
