Wednesday Twilight Race And Cruise Series (TRACs)

Our season Twilights kicked off on Wednesday 9th November in near perfect conditions with five yachts starting on Wednesday 9 November 2022.

We also had some MCYS power boats cruise the course with us – and there were some great pictures taken!

We call it the Twilight Race and Cruise Series (TRACs) for both sail racing and power or sail cruising.  On suitable nights after the race we intend to get together either for social drinks and/or barbeque at the Martha Cove Pavilion (next to the boatramp), or on ocassion raft up outside the harbour entrance. to enjoy some fellowship and the magnificent sunset that our part of the bay offers.

The dates for the twilights are as follows:
