A very successful season has just concluded, with 11 of 12 registered boats racing regularly. The Fleet also hosted the 2018-19 Garmin NSW State Titles, which had 29 starters, including 10 Gosford boats. The regatta was successful thanks to the wind gods, and the club volunteers on and off the water.

A number of Fleet members attended the Worlds, Queensland States, Nationals and Midwinter regattas. The Club Championship was won by HUH?, which is crewed by Michael Law, John Humphries, and Bruce Tennant.

The Season Pointscore (Handicap) was won by Ivy, which is crewed by John Denton, Roy Leslie, and Daniel Eddy. The most Fastest Times was also won by Ivy.

The Sprint Series was won by African Queen, which is crewed by Jan Muysken Peter McNeil and Simon Smith. The season concluded with a teams race, including both Etchells and Magic 25s to Rip Bridge, and back, with only one boat finding the mud.

Best wishes to Jan Muysken and crew who are competing in the Worlds in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Regards
Don Wilson
Gosford Etchells Fleet Secretary and Captain
