HORSHAM, Stawell and Ballarat Yacht Club held a combined sailing event for the Lake Fyans Centenary celebration on Sunday.
Conditions were uncomfortable with a variable northerly wind and continuous showers, making for intense competition for all teams.
Two races were sailed with Ballarat claiming the coveted prize and becoming the first club to win the inaugural Lake Fyans Centenary Shield.
Former international sailor Peter Mullenger was the best sailor for the Stawell Yacht Club, sailing a borrowed impulse dinghy with Rohan Allen as part of the Ballarat contingent in his laser.
Ballarat sailors Rohan Allen, Jason Hegert, Peter Coburn and Neville Biley were all congratulated as the winning team.
