2019 Spectacular Postponed

Due to the effects of cyclone Oma on Sydney weather and the predicted southerly winds for the weekend, the decision has been made to postpone the 2019 Speedboat Spectacular from this weekend until the 29 & 30 June 2019. Apologies to everyone who was looking forward to a great weekend of racing, but every weather forecast was consistent with winds that would make it unsafe for racing. We have called it as early as possible to save those travelling from interstate a wasted trip, also to minimize expenses for all of the support services.

CLUB RACE DAY CANCELLED

CLUB RACE DAY CANCELLED

The club race day scheduled for Saturday 18 August 2018 has regrettably been cancelled.  Only one expression of interest was received.  The cost of providing safety and other  support services makes it impractical to put on a race day unless we have a prior commitment from an adequate number of boats to put together a race program. The next club day is scheduled for Saturday 3 November 2o18.  Hopefully we can get a few more boats to commit to the day to make it worthwhile.  We are looking for people with ski or race boats, old or new,  to come along so we can put together a handicap program for the 70mph class.  This class is more economical for APBA licence fees and is a good introduction to social...
