On the past weekend (21/22 April) several 505s competed in the NV Autumn Grand Slam series at Stilbaai YC on the Vaaldam. The wind on Saturday was good but light with 5 races being sailed in testing conditions. 8520 - Mark B dominated the racing by scoring 4 bullets and a 2nd, while Team Ham came home in close second and Andrew Arthur with his newly acquired two dogs funking, came home in third. The event was the final organised event of the season and now all focus will shift to the 505 worlds in Poland and thereafter the nationals in September. December 2018 will also see the pre-worlds being sailed in Perth with the 2019 worlds taking place in January. Lots of sailing to happen post July.

A number of teams participated in the Guiness World Record attempt and all had a great time in this! The results are taking long to be published but the teams are confident that they did well. All eyes are on the LDYC website to issue results. Check it out at www.ldyc.co.za
