The seventh annual WinterBash regatta off the beach at Woody Point, Brisbane, attracted its largest fleet.

Humpybong Yacht Club chairman Ryan McLaughlin said sailors from Tasmania to Sydney were named early for the event on Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31 with a total of 86 boats across all divisions.

“We had an incredible number of F16s, F18s, Class A, Nacra, Taipan, C2, Tornado, Hobie and Wetas and a good fleet of dinghies from Laser, 125, Impulse, 505 and other classes.

The weather was mixed over the two days with pleasant conditions on day 1 and overcast skies on day 2. Nevertheless, the sight of boats rushing to the start and then heading south into their divisions, including the juniors to the first mark among the intermittent showers, was the most spectacular. sight seen at Bramble Bay this year.

The high level of competition on the water was evident in all three races with four division starts sending the multihulls first followed by the dinghy classes.

The marathon, which took place in partly cloudy and sunny conditions on Sunday, took sailors from Woody Point south to Shorncliffe, then all the way north to Newport and back to the Woody Point finish. The winds were steady at first, abating in the early afternoon which threw up numerous craft at various intervals.
