Brisbane, Australia – 24 November 2022
Seawind Catamarans, Corsair Marine and Multihull Central brought 21 boat owners together for a spectacular weekend of social racing on Moreton Bay as hosted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron.
A mixed fleet of 15 Seawind catamarans and 6 Corsair trimarans sailed in stunning conditions on Brisbane’s Moreton Bay on Friday the 18th of November for the first race of three. Consistent tacking to Hope Banks followed by a reach to St Helena beacon and finishing off with a downwind run to Lockyer light made for a spectacular sight of multihulls sailing together. Corsairs hunted down the fleet and took over very quickly. After a 2 hour race for some it was time to head back to RQYS for sundowners and paella by the water’s edge and under palm trees.
Saturday morning was picturesque with the first boating starting at 9:30 am for race two. A pursuit race around Green Island before anchoring for lunch and time for most to change their genoas to jibs for the 25+ knot forecast ahead in race three.
12 boats stuck in for race three with the conditions really heating up. Now it was time for the bigger boats to chase down the fleet in their preferred strong wind conditions. Same course as Friday but the fleet finished in half the time.
The event concluded with a two-course seated meal at RQ for presentation and prize night. A big thank you to our generous sponsors Club Marine, Pantaenius, Boatworks, Barracouta Sails, Tempo Spars, Pacific Sailing School, Any Port Marine, Survitec & Crew Saver.
