Good to see so many turn up nice and early today.
Heaps of time to get our yachts ready, have a friendly chat and get the rescue dinghy ready.
Seven sailors fronted up today in a bit of a test of the ability of the club to stage a scratch series or sorts for the RA class. Based on the numbers today, it is enthusiastically supported by our members and will feature again into the future.
Wind early on was non-existent to very light, with Mike's Blister and John CC's Venom taking full advantage of the light conditions.
Unfortunately, John had to leave after four races, but we continued with the six yachts in some very close and competitive racing.
The wind increased a bit towards the end of the day, which is where my GothicA came into its own and racked up some very promising places in the last three races. Interesting with the experimental pocket luff A Main on for the first time today. A very worthwhile experiment.
Chocolates for the day went to Mike - just too good in all conditions, with Lisa coming in a close second, and yours truly in third.
Thanks to Andrew for doing the Pro work for the day, and also to Stu for doing some observing calls as well. A very enjoyable day.
Tomorrow, we will be back at MBYC for DF95 Scratch
