505s competed at the annual NSRI charity regatta on the Rietvleidam near Pretoria. As usual the wind was switchy and the competition fierce. A good number of boats turned out to the event and the battle amongst the 505s was fierce with Ryan and Warwick having to fight off Campbell and Jonathan but in the end it was the challenger that walked away with the trophy and Ryan and Warwick coming second. In third place was Dudley and his crew while Andrew Arthur finished 4th. Well done to all who sailed and the next event is the Round the Island Race on the Vaal.
