2018 Myora Cup Navigation Event

2018 Myora Cup Navigation Event.

Last weekend the 2018 Myora Cup Navigation event had the perfect weather for a close competition in both GPS & Traditional divisions. 15 boats competed and several more came to Canaipa simply for the social event on Saturday night. This year’s courses were fairly challenging with 15 check gate in Traditional and 42 in the GPS competition. On shore at Canaipa the Powerboat Committee displayed every boats track big screen so you could get an idea on how you went before receiving the final scores at breakfast the following morning. A special thanks to Glen Battershill for taking on most of the breakfast cooking duties. Is was very pleasing to have 3 new boats compete for the first time and 8 Past Commodores attending showing their support for this traditional event.

Interestingly it was 2 Past Commodores winning the event.  
• GPS competition winner – Past Commodore Denis Land on North Light 
• Traditional competition winner – Past Commodore Richard Crooke on Taslander 

The full results and Tack Tracker vision can be viewed on the RQYS Cruising & Navigation web pages. Clicking on the following link should take you directly to the website race.

Thank you to everyone who competed and attended and a BIG thank you to our Major sponsors: Trymax Marine and Heineken 3 from Lyon Nathan and Associate Sponsors: Boutique Boat Company and Gold Coast City Marina for your continued support. 

If you would like to improve your navigation skills for either of our GPS or Traditional navigation events or learn how to compete, please contact the Powerboat Committee for more information.

We hope to see you on Sunday May 27th for the Past Commodores Cup.
