Anne of Craicor and Makana Confections  Final Ladies Race

Lorraine will be our starter for this fiercely contested final race in the series. Remember OCC racing is offering a spot prize for the best quality start at the gun.

Will Hogwarts Express hold on for 1st in the series? Will the rest of the Cut Lunch crew just 1 point behind, make it back across the Tasman in time for the start gun? Can Frantic repeat their last race result or will Nexus or Kantime make a last minute dash to take out the trophy?


Elliott 5.9 Association September Update

Big things are happening in the E59 one class racing scene. Opua is facing a serious challenge from RAYC for having the largest active fleet in the country.  The 2nd Traveller Series regatta of the season, hosted by RAYC is coming up on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September. The Opua Cruising Club E59 fleet will be represented in this national event by Ice Breaker, Frivolous Fish and Bandit (now renamed Elliott Gobble –it).  Not only that, the association is providing another coaching session at 1pm on the Friday before, run by the top crews in the game.

There is no better time than now to get involved in one class racing, as there are now a number of new crews starting out. It provides a rapid learning curve when you are up against such a skilled a national fleet. The latest update from the association is on the attached link

Remember OCC will be introducing Saturday afternoon racing on the 2nd Saturday afternoon each month shortly. Watch this space!
