As part of the lakes celebration on Sunday, the Stawell Yacht Club held a combined event with the Horsham Yacht club and the Ballarat Yacht Club at Lake Fyans.

Conditions were uncomfortable, with a variable northerly wind and continuous showers. Two races were sailed with Ballarat taking out the coveted prize of being the first club to win the inaugural  Lake Fyans Centenary Shield much the the disappointment of the locals.

Best sailor for the Stawell Yacht Club was former international sailor Peter Mullenger sailing a borrowed Impulse dinghy.

Thanks goes to Jim Leeke and his team of helpers from the Lake Fyans recreational area committee of management, for kindly donating the perpetual shield and prizes for the place getters.
