Tides 26-Jan-2020
There will be enough water for all boats to come in the morning, boats under 1.9m draft can return at anytime. If skippers need instruction to navigate the channels to the broad-water , let me know - 0418 253 479.

Mooring after the race
You will be directed to a yacht to raft off, a mooring or a position on a pontoon. A plan will be placed on the web to allocate all boats a suitable berth. L'attitude will return to the slips, so will need the pontoon clear. Please wait your turn to occupy your allocated position.

A tender will be running to get people from their boats to shore and back again.
