Nine skippers braved a very average forecast this morning. BOM’s forecast of northerly through westerly & a sudden SW change at midday with rain & hail was spot on. By the time our racing started the top of A rig northerly had started to slowly fade. Stu Harris was the PRO & had boats starting off one of 4 handicaps with little change during the morning - the system worked well.
Chris Wood opted to sail Stu’s woody(Corby 5) in place of his injured BP & was rewarded for his consistent sailing with a resounding win, no doubt the Britpop will now be consigned to the bin.
When the SW thumped in Wayne Behren’s Trojan lit the afterburners & took off taking him into a tight tussle with Wayne Turner, who came away with second place. Kim Potter was just one point further back, with rod Jackman, just one point behind Kim.
One race after lunch & then racing was abandoned. An enjoyable day’s sailing
