The 2022 Oceania Laser Masters is being hosted by Darwin Sailing Club Northern Territory, Australia. The are 37 competitors from Australia & New Zealand competing in the week-long event (20-26 August). Competitors have travelled from near & far with some driving their boats north whilst others decided charter boats were a better option.
Racing has been taking place on the fabulous waters of Fannie Bay. The water is a bright aqua colour, weather is warm as many sailors hit the water in shorts. The weather and conditions couldn’t be more glorious. Racing has been in the afternoons leaving the mornings to relax although this has come at a cost with quite shifty conditions on the racecourse leading to some mixed results.
After race BBQ and drinks in the Rotunda has been a daily occurrence and the most popular addition to the regatta. It has created a fantastic way to chat about the days racing, get to know the other sailors whilst watching the famous Darwin sunsets.
The Darwin Sailing Club, their staff & volunteers have done an amazing job with the regatta going very smoothly. Gary Martin, local laser legend, was the brainchild being the event being held in Darwin and the results have been beyond successful.
