250 happy folks attended the Christmas BBQ following the twilight summer series race 2 on 17th December.

You can see from the photos the deck was overflowing with extra chairs and tables brought in for the appreciative diners. Thanks to all the organisers and caterers who managed to cater for the record crowd.

The raffle on the night raised $1800 of which $900 was donated to the Salvation Army.

The winner of the best dressed crew Jackpot can be seen in the photo belowJackpot17Dec2014.

Results for the last twilight of the year are here.


BBQ_First_SummerThe first of the summer Series Twilight races was run on Wednesday 10th December in conditions similar the the past few weeks and very “un-summer” ┬álike. We only experienced one close lightning event a big improvement on last week when the now regular Sydney storms with lightning and a 35 knot front caused the cancellation of the last Autumn twilight race.

This week we just had 5mm of rain and 90 degree wind shifts. Much fun was had by all and every one was a winner if a little damp for the experience.

A smaller than usual group of diners stayed on for the BBQ cosy in the shed. You can see their happy faces in the photo above along with photos of the Black and Blue Division winners on the night receiving their prizes donated by our valued sponsors. Full results are here.

Next week will be the Christmas BBQ which is always very popular.
