A glorious day greeted the sailors for the fun sail day. A great turnout of eleven skippers, with three classes represented. We raced a handicap format per class, with the DF95’s on scratch, IOM’s on 1 minute, and RM’s on two minutes.
The handicapper’s decision on the times was very well calculated, and there were many close finishes on the single lap course.
Initially, we had quite light, but consistent conditions from the NW, but decided to take a bit of a drink break (it was close to 30C out there), when the wind died right off, but a fresh, but still pretty light sea breeze pushed through and we sailed the rest of the afternoon off the back of that, eventually packing up a bit after 4pm. At a guess, there were 12-15 races in all.
The day was enjoyed by all. Great to see a good mix of sailors, young and not so young, new members, regular members, and members who have not been able to turn up quite so much. On the back of this day, I am pretty sure we will do similar on other public holiday and long weekend Sundays maybe.
RM’s sailing this Sunday. If you might be interested in having a sail, but don’t have an RM, I can have a Boogie RM ready to sail on the day. Just let me know so I can have it ready for you. We are also always on the lookout for assistance on the sail days, so if you’d like to have a go at PRO, observing, or rescue boat duties, please call out.
