Race History

The first race for the Gordon Craig took place in 1949 and the Dolphin Race in 1953. Over the last 60 years these races have been made up of a number of different course formats from windward-leeward racing to short passage races. In the last few years the course has taken yachts from Fremantle to Rockingham for an overnight stay at TCYC and then Rockingham back to Fremantle on the Sunday.

The Bill Schulstad Memorial Trophies

These trophies will be awarded to the boats in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 with the best aggregate IRC corrected time for both races (Dolphin Race / Gordon Craig Ocean Race). Bill Schulstad was a long serving member of The Cruising Yacht Club and instrumental in the famous Cockburn Sound Regattas that dominated the offshore sailing season for many years. Bill was also deeply involved in te administration of yachting through YWA and was a life member of that organisation.
