More than 80 boats took part in a weekend of record breaking when the Tweed Valley SC headed south to Harwood for the Big River Sailing Club annual regatta two weeks ago.
This year 30 TVSC members made the trip bringing 13 boats between them and also providing crew for boats from other clubs.
Corsairs, Lasers, Herons, Impulses, a Hobie 18 and a Maricat all went, meaning there were TVSC entrants in all divisions.
The three-handed Corsairs made history with the resurrection of the Corsair Eastern States Titles, bringing the largest number of Corsairs together at one time for many years.
As well as six Corsairs from our own Tweed Valley SC there were also Corsairs from Brisbane, and the farthest to travel was Kathy Bourke with crew Kim and Tony travelling 560km all the way from Budgewoi SC.
Many TVSC members are completely new to the sport and so were happy to see their efforts during the year pay off with TVSC boats taking second and third in the Corsair Eastern States, and all crews refining their techniques in the difficult conditions over the weekend.
Placegetters were: Odin crewed by Daniel Sieders, Adrain Doktor and Tamara Sheppard and Swell Lady crewed by Monique Smith, Matt Andrews and Deb Flannery
TVSC U/18 sailors Taj Krasna, Max Hennessy (both from Fingal Head) and Isaac Poulsen (Burringbar) all enjoyed the weekend crewing on Corsairs.
With 12 of these boats now being sailed on the Tweed we have the biggest fleet in the country.
