The RPAYC's Rear Commodore Sal Ridulfo is one of the latest entries in his Beneteau First 44.7 Racer/Cruiser Galileo who is looking forward to restarting his east coast bluewater racing after a few years gap from his previous forays north to Southport and Mooloolaba in his previous boat Plus 16 a Farr11.16.
Sal commented, “since being encouraged to enter the Pittwater to Paradise Regatta by my fellow members, the Club has been exceptional in helping me fill crew gaps , organise training to meet crew qualification and Safety requirements in a very user friendly and seamless manner . The support provided pre/post and during the regatta also makes getting to the start line and completing the event (s) in a quality race environment as easy and enjoyable as possible. I am sure all competitors will also appreciate the advice of world renowned meteorologist Roger Badham ‘Clouds’, who has been engaged for next year's race , as well as the customary RPAYC /SYC hospitality and greeting that will be provided at both ends of the ocean race for every boat “.
