SPRING SPLASH - Labour Weekend

Bon Accord Harbour, Kawau Island



October 2019

Past Event held SUNDAY 21


October 2018

Spring arrived with weather more like summer. The annual Labour Day Spring Splash held in conjunction with the Kawau Boating Club was in danger of being called off due to of lack of wind. With a Mark Foy start, the last yachts away were left stranded in Bon Accord becalmed and half the fleet did not complete the course. Martin Farrand’s Scout managed to sneak away through the flat spots to catch Gypsy by halfway and they had a great battle to the finish. The mild weather made it perfect for a raft-up and a memorable after-race party. At an idyllic evening on the mothership for the prize-giving and dinner, Martin modestly claimed luck for his success - but clearly he had done this before!
