RBYC Dragons at Gippsland Lakes Easter Regatta

A number of RBYC Dragon Sailors made their way down to Gippsland Lakes for their annual Easter Regatta on the waters around Paynesville.

Charles Stanton, owner of Dragon 176 Amazing Grace, made the trip down to meet up with fellow Brighton member Hugh Howard, who now resides in Paynesville with his newer Tarakona. 

The three race series has a combination of short and long distance passage races with a 30nm race on the Saturday, followed by the ‘Round the Island’ (Raymond Is) on the Sunday and the Lake Victoria Triangle race on the Monday .

The Brighton duo performed well in the 49 boat fleet, with Charlie Stanton and crew finishing 12th overall on Amazing Grace and the new local Hugh Howard on Tarakona finishing 5th overall.

Congratulations to both and welcome back to Brighton Chaz
