ADF & Veterans Regatta | 2022
It was a fantastic day for our first ever ADF & Veterans Regatta held on Friday 13 May.
Sailors were welcomed at the CYCSA and started the day over coffee while enjoying the social atmosphere before the days briefing commenced. Teams and boats were selected, pitting current ADF personnel and Vets against each other in what ensured to be a competitive day ahead.
Testing conditions greeted the sailors during the morning training session, providing an ideal opportunity for the teams to build their skills, teamwork and camaraderie. Lunch provided a perfect break where the sailors casually socialised while reviewing the mornings session with plenty of smiles laughs and banter!
Following the pre-race briefing, the focus changed to tactics and strategy for the afternoon racing, where race committee did a great job with the variable weather. Gusty and shifty conditions challenged the skills and teamwork of the fleet before the wind disappeared after three races were completed.
Team Musto sailed by Veterans Geoff Boettcher, Mark Watters and Wayne Hale won the regatta with a near perfect score card.
A big thank you to the all the current ADF personal, Veterans and volunteers who contributed to making the day a success, in what will be the first event of many.
The CYCSA ADF & Veterans Regatta was proudly supported by the ADF Sports Council, Invictus Pathways Program, Saltwater Veterans.
