Wackett Trophy Nav Rally Sunday 10th April

The BMYS Wackett Trophy NavRally for 2022 was held on Sunday the 10th of April, on a day where the weather threatened and looked a bit ominous.

The day started very pleasantly but the northerly breeze built during the morning. Well done to all boat crews for completing the course in testing conditions.

Encouragement Award

The encouragement award went to Wayne Paravicini and Hans Harms. This was their first rally and they successfully navigated the course in Chantelle (Wayne’s pride and joy) and had lots of fun. Everyone enjoyed the Tack Tracker replay back in the clubhouse seeing Wayne and Hans go around the course on the big screen.


All crews finished the course with the following placings.

    • 1st Place – John and Anita Giuliano
    • 2nd Place – Rob Mignone and Matthew Hunt
    • 3rd Place – Bill Joughin and Andrew Cropley tied with Graeme Joynson and Peter Leason

The Ricketts Points Regatta being the premier Nav Rally for the season will be held on Sunday 15th May. Anyone participating in a Nav Rally is eligible for the major participation prize of an Engel fridge. This will be presented at the end of the Nav Rally season.

Thanks to all participants, and to the Boating Committee for putting on such a great day. Thanks to Noel and Ben for running the rescue boat.
