King of Bramble Bay Regatta

Today we celebrated the life of Keith Nickerson and his association with SYC and the broader boating community on the northside of Brisbane by naming the SYC boat shed in his honour. It was great to hear the history of boating activities in the area and the history of the club first-hand from Keith’s son Greg and others close to him.

The Nickerson family’s business Northside Marine have supported and sponsored the club for over 30 years!

Following the service and some morning tea, competitors took to the water to complete the final 2 races for the King of Bramble Bay trophy. 2 races were held on Olympic Triangle courses in a pleasant 10-12 knot NE’er. This year the King of Bramble Bay was SNAffU with a convincing 3 wins from 3 races.
Races 1-3
