Heaven Can Wait Regatta

The skipper and crew of Balthazar are representing WPYC and heading up to Lake Macquarie in mid November to compete in the annual Heaven Can Wait regatta.

This as an arduous series not for the feint hearted and will seriously test the crew that includes Tim Marshall and Scotty Taylor amongst two others.

They are entered in all three challenges, one lap dash, twelve hour and the final challenge, a twenty four hour event where the winner sails the most distance.

It is a charity fund raising weekend held by the RMYC Toronto in aid of the Cancer Council for cancer research, Balthazar has already raised over $800 and is hoping to top $1500.

This is a very worth while cause and support should go to   https://hcw2013.everydayhero.com/au/Balthazar

On behalf of the Woody Point Yacht Club I would like to wish them well and hope they bring back both glory and trophies to our club and much needed funds for the Cancer Council.
