 Excellent conditions, many boats and lots of competition where had at the 505 Highvelds at PSC on the 26/27 of August 2017. Six boats competed for the trophy in testing conditions and Saturday saw 5 races being completed. Racing was tight with the lead being shared by the Funkes and Klaas/v Gruenewaldt. The new combination of Tiley and Ham also sailed good races to beat DJ Biagio/Richley while Christian Holm and Warwick Ham held off a lethal challenge from Dietmar Holm and PSC Commodore, Marius Fourie. The wind on Saturday was constant and allowed for some great trapezing conditions. Sunday was extremely light and the race committee did well to get two very short and frustrating races sailed. Biagio/Richely were the clear winners on the day with a handsome 1,2 while Tiley and Ham got a good 5,1 combination in. The final results are on the 505 website at www.rsa505.org.za 


The next event is the 505 Northvaal Championship at LDYC and this will be sailed with the SAS NV Grand Slam. September is a great time to sail on the Vaal and all should be urged to get onto the water. Make your way down there and sail with us in the fun regatta. The NOR is attached and it is recommended that you enter early to pay less. Come let's go sailing!
