The scenery of the Goblets! Once again the traditional twilight regatta on Sydney Harbour didn't disappoint.

A 5 race series was sailed over three evenings followed by a mini-series style Saturday. The 6th and final race was abandoned with a storm warning issued by the Bureau, and only some of us packing up before the drenching!

A fabulous regatta organised by Sydney Fleet Captain, Richard Hammond and his team, with a special mention to the volunteers and their often late nights, Richard's wife Jill, Ian, Charles, Phil, David, Bill, Rob, and Geoff - thank you!

At the time of writing results are provisional, with a protest pending.
