The month of February 2016 saw see bumper fleets participating in various Sharpie regattas around Australia - starting with the wrap up of the SA States on the 6-7th February at Wallaroo on the Yorke Penninsula. This is a favourite venue for SA Sharpie sailors so much so that newly crowned National Champion "Sam" McCloud has a house there. The club has been rebuilt and has excellent facilities, ample rigging and ex-sharpie sailors who know how to please the competitors. It was a great weekend - check out Jibe Mark on Carnage Corner, with this video by David McCloud going viral....
