IRC Big Boat & M32 Arena Racing in the Bay

What a great afternoon of stadium style racing at the Club. It was a great showcase of IRC yachts and M32's catamarans.

We watched Sam Gilmour's Neptune Racing match Matt Jerwood's Redline Racing over two heats in the M32's. They were joined in the bay by yachts The Next Factor (Dave Walling), The Cadillac (Peter Chappell), Three Good Wives (Carter / Clyne / Hickson) and Black Betty (Gary McNally). Back to the M32 course area for an owner/driver style series with the four multihulls out racing. Skippers were Alistair Murchison (orange), Ian Jenkins (blue), Darryl Dedman (red) and Ian Clyne (green). 

The event streamed live on YouTube thank you to our broadcast partners Front Row Screens. They did a great job of on-shore and on the water camera work with race commentary to match. Our expert race commentators Ed Fethers from Sport FM 91.3 and sailor Dave Gilmour entertained the crowd. The afternoon's big screen entertainment began with on-board footage from RFBYC Offshore yacht M3, Peter Hickson's TP 52 helmed by Brent Fowler. The start of the Cabbage Tree Island Race on Sydney Harbour timed nicely to kick of a great show at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club.
