IMPORTANT NOTICE: CYCA Flinders Islet Notice – December 16, 2009


For the attention of Members, Rolex Sydney Hobart Race Competitors and Fellow BlueWater Yachtsmen and Yachtswomen.

As you are aware, an internal CYCA Inquiry is currently underway into the Flinders Islet Race which resulted in the tragic loss of Andrew Short and Sally Gordon and the vessel PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Although the Committee is still preparing its final report, some issues have arisen which the Board feels it is important to draw to the attention of members competing in any off-shore event, but more particularly the forthcoming Rolex Sydney to Hobart race.
