Abell Point Yacht Club (APYC) will launch its new Friday night twilight calendar from the 18th July renaming it the Abell Point Sunset Series.
With the Whitsunday cruising season in full swing, prime sailing conditions will kick start the weekly sunset series and will include a number of great social events and a range of prizes for keen sailors. The first sunset race of the series, on the 18th July, will also follow with a BBQ in the new North Village public area where members will be provided with their very own freshly branded APYC burgees and caps.
Members of the APYC are encouraged to bring along friends and fellow yachties to participate in the Sunset Series to enjoy the great sailing conditions and get behind a new era of the Yacht Club in association with Abell Point Marina.
The launch of the social series is also well timed for local and visiting yachties to use the new series as a feeder event for the upcoming Airlie and Hammo Race Weeks; ensuring their crew and vessel is well tuned for the big event.
Vice Commodore Rupert King of Abell Point Yacht Club said, “The launch of the new Sunset Series is very exciting and It’s great to see a regular sailing event on the yacht club calendar. I am looking forward to seeing some new entrants participating in the series and other on and off water events throughout the year’.”
The Abell Point Yacht Club was bolstered by the support of main sponsor Abell Point Marina earlier this year, with new owner Paul Darrouzet committing to reviving the club and growing it's on and off water events in order to build members and create more of a yacht club feel to the marina.
