PORT VINCENT CLASSIC 2003 & 2004
            
       

The Port Vincent Classic is 3 day event run by the Port Vincent Sailing Club over the Australia Day long weekend. It consists of a race on each of the 3 days with final results being combined to give an overall winner. 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are awarded for each day but you can win a prize this way only once. Hence presentation awards can differ from the results accordingly. On the first day the course is usually  to Stansbury and return. On day 2 to Black Point and return and on day 3 a shorter race around the buoys in the bay gives an opportunity for an early presentation and allow visiting yachts an early return for home.  I took part in the 2002 Port Vincent Classic on "Jay-Em2" and in 2003 & 2004 after the boat was renamed  "Mikela."
In 2003 the weather was a little unkind on day 2  which meant that the trip to Black Point was replaced witha race around the buoys close to the sailing club. A high regard for safety is always maintained in this event and course changes made when required.
