Sorry for the late posting, but here are the results of yesterday’s handicap racing. I turned up at the end of the day, and it looked to be a nice little breeze for the last race and a half, with dead flat water. The 10 yachts on the water when I turned up looked fantastic out there. Sounds like a few weed issues this week, but that cannot be helped.
Of note, today’s top three all completed every race. Shows how important it is to get across that finish line. John hall enjoyed a return to form, well in the lead at the end of the day, on 4 points, with Rod Marshall throwing in another consistent effort in second on 13 points, beating Rod Jackman in third by countback.
Next Wednesday is going to be an attempt at sailing at Risdon Brook Dam, to see how it is sailing there with the still reduced dam level. It is thought that it will be quite sailable, albeit with a bit of a walk to the shoreline. Nothing we have not done in the past, so get the DF95’s ready and we hope to see you there next Wednesday. 10am scratch for a warm up, and then Handicap from 11am.
This Sunday has a return of the IOM’s to Montrose Bay, and we will be sailing off the championship course this week, with a Jet Ski day also planned outside the clubhouse. It will be a great tuneup for those there for the IOM Tasmanian Championship the following weekend. If you are not sailing in the Championship, and would like to give it a go, we are always looking for volunteers to assist with the PRO duties, rescue boat duties and observer duties. Please give John Hall or myself a call if you would like to help out. We will give you as much assistance and support for it, including making sure you fully understand what will be needed for each role.
