2014 W I L D C A T REGATTA 4-5-6 October

Recommended Posts

This is it! More than a regatta. This is a festival of fun, music, footy, food and sailing all mixed in together. This is a CATAMARAN regatta and this is why we love to sail- to go fast and to have fun.

Yeah- we’re all show-offs and addicted to speed. Give me a screaming reach and a Hollywood finish. Then reload and give me some more. When the race is over I’ll race you back to shore flying a hull as high as possible.

Then turn up the music and let’s meet old friends and make new ones along the way- we’re cat sailors and that’s how we do it! Fire up the BBQ and grab the deck chairs. The footy Finals on the big screen and the kids are runnin’ on the grass and playing in the water.

Let’s talk about today and laugh about tomorrow while the sun sets over the water. As I begin to re-hydrate I think about getting out of the wet gear and heading for a hot shower. I can see hot pasta, those tasty Kranskys and hamburgers lined up at the bar. There is more laughter than talk and I’m lovin’ it. I’ve been here two nights and it feels like a holiday already.

The Capulets will be playing again and rocking the Sunday night away. 

It's a night time Grand Final this year so we will be watching the GF in darkness, which means we will have the big screen outside.

Huge weekend of mowing and getting ready for the Wildcat. Our sandy fill from last year is great. Covered in grass and after a week or more of rain its still great.

I know this is last years event page but can't find a new page does this event have different courses ie is there reaching courses and separate windward return courses and how many different starts per race, if I drag a 5.8 and a 5.7 up there what types of boats would be in our race

There are two courses, a windward return and a outer triangle course. There are four or five starts. Generally speaking it is

Misc small,

H16- H14 

F18/F16

Misc Large. 5.8, Hobie 18. There is s solid fleet of 5.8's each year. The 5.8 do a triangle course. The triangle is set highish and not too wide.
