    Thanks to everyone who came to the Balmain regatta 2014!

    This year's regatta was a resounding success, despite the wind, or rather lack of it for the first hour or two. The fleet of nearly a hundred boats patiently waited for a southerly, their crew dipping their toes in the water, having a drink or even going for a swim. When the AP flag finally came down, there was enough wind for everyone, including the open yacht divisions who sailed under the bridge past Fort Denison, around Clark Island and back.

    After the race it was time for celebrations, with drinks, food and a live band. It was an amazing crowd and the club committee would like to extend their heartfelt thank you to all sailors, community members and volunteers who made this event possible. Come next year, we will be happy to see you again!
