Governor Robe Wines were proud to be the major sponsor for the stern chaser yacht race, held in Guichen Bay, Robe on Saturday 16th of January. Sailor's with the slowest boat started first, with all competitors racing for line honours. This made for a very exciting finish!
Sailors came from visiting regional yacht clubs to compete for Governor Robe Wines. This race is held in conjunction with the Guichen Bay Challenge, held on Sunday the 17th of January, and the Robe Boat and Fishing Show. A large number of spectators turned out.
The weather challenged sailors, blowing up to 25 knots, which worked in favour for the winner- Hugh Bainger in his Nacra Catamaran.
