A perfect Autumn day at Montrose this morning. Couldn't be better, except that the wind died at lunch time (again) so there was no sailing after lunch.
Twelve skippers sailing in a light to mid A rig northerly, with two laps of the windward/leeward course - our new buoy setup working very well.
John Short sailed his new (to him) Corby 5, which he had going very well, recording one win and two seconds.
Phil Turnbull also recorded two wins today.
There were a lot of very close finishes with the six races sailed.
Great sailing again. We just needed the breeze to hang around a little bit longer.
Winner today, was John Short, on 5 points, with Kim Potter taking second spot with 14 points, and John Hall in third, a further two astern on 16.
Sad to see the Italians (and Australian) go down in the AC in Auckland, after a valiant effort. The Kiwi's (and Australian) just had boat speed advantage, and it's hard to beat that.
This Sunday, we have RM Summer Scratch Series Round 3, starting at 1pm.
An early reminder that we have a double header weekend the week after, with the Herb Tyson Memorial for A Class on Saturday 27th March, and the 42 Degrees South Regatta for D95 on Sunday 28th March.
