ONLINE ENTRIES CLOSE at 5pm, Thursday 13th May

 Warrandyte Bridge, 229 Yarra St, Warrandyte

The VSTC are pleased to announce Yarra Series 2 will be held at Warrandyte Bridge, Warrandyte. Our first beginners’ race was a big success and we will continue to run a beginners’ race before the first run of each main Yarra Series race. There is no charge for the beginners’ race and a free BBQ sausage is included at the end of the race.

Late registrations and additions on the day are difficult, so please nominate each class you wish to participate in and advise compiling on the day if you wish to withdraw from any class. This allows us to better organise the time allowed in the program, particularly for C2 boat sharing.
