NB Sydney races to 6th place – PIF Regatta

Group ShotNapier & Blakeley were pleased to again support The Property Industry Foundation in the Sydney Charity Sailing Cup.  This is a unique opportunity for client entertainment, business networking and relationship building, while making a difference to desperate kids who are doing it tough, by raising money to build a home for homeless young people.

The event was very well supported with well over 85 yachts racing, with 7 of them also being entrants for the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race.

Beautiful weather and 15 knot winds provided a perfect backdrop for an excellent day of sailing as the 6th place overall is testament.

We raced on ‘Margaret Rintoul V’ which is 61 foot maxi cruising and racing yacht.  After dropping anchor for lunch at the idyllic Manly Cove, it was then practice time – under the professional guidance of our crew, before the start of the race.
