Cruisers in actionThe big sail boats will be in action for the first time this year in race 1 of the 8 race HHM Cruiser series. Last year saw the inaugural “Round the Sound” series and proved very popular with 17 different boats coming out for what was billed as “fun racing with the emphasis on fun”.

Clive Bodden’s “Yahoo Yahoo” took the trophy last year sailing consistently in all six races. The series has now been expanded to eight races and everyone will be gunning for the big catamaran. Bruce Johnson’s “Blue Runner” who came in second overall has had his boat out of the water prepping it to do even better this year. “The races are fun but the prizes from Harbour House are well worth giving it all you’ve got” explained Bruce.

Tight at the startThe cruiser series which is a collaboration between the Sailing Club and Harbour House Marina drew plenty of support in its first year. “We hoped that running fairly short races with easy courses would allow for greater participation” explained Rick Caley, manager of the sailing club. “No boats felt intimidated racing with the big guns and the spirit after racing was enhanced by some great Barbeques. We hope to attract even more boats to come out and join in the fun this year”

Saturday February 2nd sees the first race which will start at 1 pm. Other upcoming race dates are March 17th, April 21st, June 1st and July 28th.
