Day 2 of Registration commenced under blue skies. The easterly continues to howl keeping many sailors away from the water with a few venturing for a sail in the 20/25 knot breeze. For many it was the first sail in the boat since packing them into containers months ago.
The Race Committee and the Rescue Teams assembled for pre-regatta briefings with many officials coming from Perth and as far away as Broome. Sadly, one of our Race Committee ended up in Hospital after falling while getting about the Committee Boat. With an ulna broken in three places, we won't see him for official duties and wish him a quick recovery.
The Official Opening to the 45th LandCorp Australian Championships was most enjoyable as the competitors, officials and supporters enjoyed the sundowner. Commodore Paul Terry welcomed the competitors and Event Director Anthony Galante briefed the sailors.
