NPAFACS was proud to be part of the 2012 annual raft regatta which took place the 22nd of September. Sporting the NPAFACS colours the blue whaler driven by Rebecca and Cassie Mark got off to a good start cruising towards Seisia, however the wind proved to be quite a challenge for tacking (the term used in sailing for zig zagging to get in front of the wind for forward motion) which led to the blue whaler not completing the race. NPAFACS would like to thank all those that participated on the day to get the boat ready and those that did the pre preparations with building the boat and painting it. It is always a wonderful thing to have community involved in activites that happen in the NPA. Hopefully next year will be an even better turn out and the blue whale will sail its way to Seisia first.
