For 2023 the Sussex Regatta was hosted by Brighton Marina Yacht Club, with 3 races planned across 2 days of racing. A great turn out of 17 boats took to the water. The wind gods were not in favour and while the race committee bravely soldiered on, the final tally was 2 races in Saturday and 2 races on Sunday. In, at times very, light winds the tactics were about tide and sailing skill to keep moving. But with brilliant sunshine on Saturday all competitors must have enjoyed the day on the water. Sunday’s rain was more challenging to enjoy however.
Ashore, BMYC put in a fantastic evening BBQ on Saturday and a great Prizegiving on Sunday.
Big congratulations to SYC boat Upstart for the overall win in IRC!
