The Past Commodores Cup Navigation event was run on an absolutely sensational Saturday afternoon which made for a low scoring competition. After the boats ran the local course around Green Island, most came back to Manly mooring at the Squadron’s Bill Kirby VIP jetty for a few sundowners while the results were calculated. The beautiful boat Scotia, well-known to the Squadron & Navigation events was back competing with new owner and first time competitor James Tuma. We have video evidence that James and his crew had a great time running the course and they took out the Rookie prize.

The results for the GPS competition –
1st place – North Light-P/Cdr Denis Land 9 points
2nd place – Knot Home-Geoff O’Connor 14 points
3rd place – Tin Thing-Jenny Atkinson 19 points

The results for the Traditional competition –
1st place – Nocturn-Charles Kirby 67 points
2nd place – Lucinda Bay-Peter Tyquin 96 points
3rd place – Tailana-Glen Battershill 196 points

Congratulations to P/Cdr Denis Land and Charles Kirby and to everyone who competed.

If you are interested in learning more about GPS or Traditional navigation and enjoy a great social event, our navigation events are fun and challenging and another excuse to get out on your boat with a great group of people. It makes no difference how fast or slow your boat is, or how big or small. A large variety of boats competed in the Past Commodores Cup with the largest boat Odyssey approx. 25m to the smallest boat Tin Thing 4.8m.
