Tandem Ride for Round 2 of Port Phillip Passage and Port Phillip Women’s Passage Series

by Rosie Colahan

Round 2 of the Port Phillip Passage Series (PPPS) and the Port Phillip Women’s Passage Series (PPWPS) is coming up this weekend 12-13 Nov 2016 hosted by Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron (RMYS).

The format for the weekend is for the two passage series events to be combined as part of the club’s Ruth Nangle trophy as a Pursuit Race with Spinnakers from St Kilda to Safety Beach. For female sailors taking up the helm for the PPWPS, please ensure that you are listed as the female helm for the event to comply with Notice of Race and ensure that you will be scored appropriately for your endeavours.

Port Phillip Passage Series now has its own tab and page on the Keelboat Victoria website for easy access to all dates, race documents and information.  You will find a Notice to Competitors (link below) on this new page as there has been an amendment to the original date published for Round 2.

The weather forecast is for developing northerlies tending nor’west which will give a glamour ride to Martha Cove for a social evening hosted by Safety Beach Sailing Club.

Sunday’s return race sees the running of RMYS’ Jeanette Turnbull trophy race, a club Aggregate Race for RMYS members, with everyone invited to race back or opt for a more leisurely cruise.

Come and join us for a more leisurely sailing experience. Good luck and fair winds and we look forward to seeing you on the water.
