If you use Google Chrome as your browser, note that a recent “upgrade” by Google introduced a problem such that many pdf files accessed by a link (these include our race results, race reports, forms and documents) may fail to open.  Until Google fix this, there are three workarounds: a) use a different browser, b) in Google Chrome open “new incognito window” and open website in that or c) go into the computer’s settings and ask your computer to “download” pdf files rather than open them.

February 22nd.  At last the weather allowed another race – serving as Cec Anderson 3 as well as the Channels Race.

Race results (provisional) are posted on the race results page.  And a report is on the race reports page.

Queenscliff Cup January 2nd to 5th.

Not a QLYC race, but 4 QLYC boats signed up for the QCYC “Queenscliff Cup” regatta:  Imagine, Sundance, Boomaroo and Tiercel.  Unfortunately, racing was abandoned on the second day owing to loss of wind (with only three vessels getting round the course), and on Saturday there was no race owing to a gale.  The re-run on Sunday had a short race in light airs followed by a long race in strong winds, often around 25 knots.  The series was won (2nd year running) by Dream Catcher, with Boomaroo second and Tiercel third.

A summary of the results is in this link: Queenscliff Cup results.
