BBYC major rum race

BBYC major rum race:

Friday 22nd August was the BBYC (Bucklands Beach Yacht Club) major rum race where we saw five 727’s at the start line (Zap, Nikolina, Optional Extra, Headstrong & Entrée) with a number of other small boats present as well such as pied pipers & stratus 747’s which was awesome to see such a large turn out of small boats.The afternoon/evening was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone on the water racing and after the race as well. Optional Extra was first across the finish line followed by Zap, which was not far behind. Then Nikolina sailed single handed and behind her was Entree and headstrong.

The fleet was dominant at the prize giving, claiming the majority of rum, 7 bottles in total and many other prizes. All in all everyone’s feedback was that it was well worth taking the afternoon off work and can’t wait for the next event.

The next BBYC Major rum race will be in December

It would be great to see these gatherings more often in your local area with the 727’s and other small boats.

Cheers to Lion & Half Moon Bay marina for sponsoring the event
