Centreboard Cup 2017: Sat 9 Dec; 12 noon race start.

This year’s Sloanes Beach Regatta and Centreboard Cup at Sloanes Beach, 33/35 Marine Parade, Herne Bay, is scheduled for Saturday December 19th 2017.

We will be running our usual mix of childrens’ games, mucking about in boats, and around-Watchman-Island racing for centreboard boats big and small. As in past years, our racing will feature the historic Mullet boat fleet in all their glory. The racing starts at 11am 1200hrs (centreboard boats 18’ and over) and 1205 (for the smaller centreboarders), and will be run by the Ponsonby Cruising Club. (Note that this 12 noon time is correct; the earlier time in the Ponsonby handbook is not correct.) All centreboarders are welcome. High tide is a 3.4m at 12.51pm. There will be fun activities on the beach from around 1100am, including rowing and/or short sailing races. The format will be similar to past events.
