Bit of an odd day today at the dam, where we had 11 boats racing. Scratch racing started in upper A rig conditions in a north to north easterly breeze, which created difficult & changeable conditions at the top mark 7. After 3 handicap races a front came through, forcing all boats to scurry for shore for a rig change, early lunch & various repairs.
After lunch, the racing continued in again NE B rig fronts interspersed with big lulls - to add to the difficulty, weed became a problem - so not the most satisfying day to race despite the warm temperature.
Having a chat with Wayne Court, he says TasWater has dropped the dam level to try & kill the weed which is of an invasive nature, which reduces the effect of added chlorine to the water. Apparently, a traxcavator will be used around the waters edge to try & remove the weed - we shall see.
Wine for 4th, 5th & 6th today (Peter Germain, Wayne Behrens and Andrew Wardrop).
