The 2nd year of the Festival of the Sea was back with excellent weather and a great series of events across the weekend. Also for the first time it incorporated a new format SYC Cup, which built on prior years by also adding the Black Rock Long Inshore to the schedule.
The Festival of the Sea once again showed the fantastic diversity of activities at SYC. Paddle boarding, dinghy sailing, outriggers, yachts and of course the return of the crabbing competition put on a fantastic show. A great amount was raised for charity. The Keelboat Section, which takes the responsibility organising the entire event, thanks all the many volunteers that made this a success and the Steward and all staff at restaurant & bar for putting on great food and drinks.
Prizegiving for the SYC Cup attracted a lot of people to the bar but the real draw was another fantastic performance from the Wellington Wailers!
The winners of the most crabs caught with 45 were Jackson and Lottie Lancaster, ages 5 and 7.
