Blues Point Hotel enters Pub Challenge
As part of its Annual Regatta, one of the oldest clubs on Sydney Harbour, Balmain Sailing
Club, invites local pubs to sponsor a yacht to race in its Pub Challenge Trophy Race. This
year, the invitation has been extended to include Blues Point Hotel.
With help from Blues Point Yacht Club, the Blues Point Hotel has accepted the challenge.
Representing the Hotel on Sunday 28 October will be “Blue Sky”, owned and skippered by
BPYC member Carl Braden. Carl and his crew will be competing against more than a dozen
other yachts in what should be a race of serious fun – very much like BPYC’s usual style of
racing. First prize is the honour, and bragging rights, of keeping the perpetual trophy for a
year at the winning pub.
You’re invited to cheer on the Blues Point Hotel entrant either from Balmain Sailing Club
where the race commences, or from one of the vantage points around the Harbour west of
the Sydney Harbour bridge.
