The 2018 SSANZ series has attracted a record number of entries in the Young 88 and Pied Piper one design fleets.
It seems like a good excuse to mark the occasion with a "quiet" celebration and a record sized, one design raft up hosted by the above fleets.
We are officially fundraising for Coastguard to give something back for all the hard working volunteers that log our progress and provide a great service we hope we never need. Our stretch target of $1500 pays for one coastguard crew volunteer to be fully trained. The bucket will be passed around the raft and the bay for cash donations and in exchange for a delicious "gourmet" sausage 'n sauce. BRING CASH!
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the record for boats rafting together was set on August 14, 2010, when 1,651 boats rafted up at the 1st Annual Lake Cumberland Raft Up in Kentucky. Suspect we wont get to those numbers.
Events will kick off in Islington bay immediately after the last race finishes. We've already heard of plenty who are throwing in a sleeping bag.
One design fleets/boats bring fenders and lines to join the raft. All SSANZers and guests welcome to swim over
Spread the word.. racing or not the more boats out there the better the celebration.
Reminder BRING CASH, MOORING LINES and FENDERS
