"The hardstand at BYS"

Members of the previous Blairgowrie Fleet, Wayne Mercer, Andrew Colliver, and Ken Douglas have started sailing Etchells again with existing boats. I have also purchased AUS 1287 from Laurie Woods of RQYS. Together with the arrival of our long sort after hard stand it now makes Etchells sailing better than ever at our base at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron on the Mornington Peninsula.

There is a market for used boats and equipment due to the current interest amongst members, and I would like to hear of boats available that may not be on the website, so that I can advise other BYS members who are considering joining the Etchells.

Please send information to me -, or phone 0429 161 164.
