Entries are flowing in for the HumpyBash Regatta, a key October drawcard for off-the-beach sailors along the Redcliffe foreshore.
With a week to go, the 2022 HumpyBash Regatta, in Bramble Bay, has attracted competitors from four states who embrace junior and senior racing.
Humpybong Yacht Club president Ryan McLaughlin said the seventh annual Bash is expected to attract between 70 to more than 100 entries in high-performance catamarans across senior and junior dinghy classes on October 15-16, 2022.
Perfect condtions in Bramble Bay with comfortable water temperature and typical east to northerly sea breezes make for exhilarating sailing.
“We have competitors from Queensland, New South Wales to Victoria and Tasmania who have come to Redcliffe for the Bash as training before national championships are held over the Christmas-New Year break,” Mr McLaughlin said.
“We again expect significant numbers of around 100 to 150 plus boats in all classes for the weekend including competitive fleets of high performance A class, F16 and F18 Nacra’s.
“The public is in for spectacular racing as these catamarans power around their windward to leeward loops and up to the finish line.
“Meanwhile youth and senior sailors will battle it out for line honors in the dinghy classes racing triangle courses with Lasers, 125’s, Contenders, 505’s, Taser, Sharpie, RS100 and other craft jockeying for position in the packed senior fleet.” Mr McLaughlin said.
Humpybong Yacht Club runs the Bash junior fleets in their own separate race area in more protected waters with high level competition amongst the big fleet of Opti’s and RS Neo’s.
