Skiffs Bill Bridge Memorial Race

 

 

 

 

 

 

"For something different the start was on a reach. BAMM got the jump off the line just in front of BGN. ESP were in a big gust and about to roll over the top when they dug the nose in and got reacquainted with the river. The newest old boat to the fleet River Rats missed the start but we're able to catch up to team ESP but a broken halyard on the first downwind ended their day. From there BAMM were able to hold on for a comfortable victory (Jack Anderson's first win in a 16), Geoff and the BGN crew came in 2nd with ESP coming home in 3rd.

We'll done to Arno, Anthony and Keith for a solid first effort after Arno and Keith have had a few years away from the 16s. It was a tough day but lads of fun. Hopefully we'll get a similar breeze for the Qld sprints in a few weeks time."

End of Season Commodore's Report

Well that's it for another season.

Big fleets of Lasers and 16ft Skiffs gracing the course in the Hamilton reach of the river. The last race of the season had it all, sheep stations were on the line in the 7th and final heat of the club championship, with places constantly changing. Broken masts and mishaps were a plenty keeping the rescue boats and drivers busy, we even had to contend with the cruise ship turning on the finish line making it an interesting finish.The winner not known till the last few meters from the line.

Thank you to everyone for another stellar season at B.S.S. I can not thank our volunteers enough for the tireless work you all put in to making everything run smoothly. Thank you to all comimittee members working behind the scenes to make sure we can continue to enjoy all our club has to offer. Thank you to Shayne Sutton for her kind words and support throughout the season. Congratulations to the club Champions and trophy winners of the 2016/2017 season. 

Good luck to those competing over the off season and we will see you all next season.
