Winter Series – Day 1

A lovely day on the water yesterday, although a little cool. The first event of the Winter Series was held and the Race Officers conducted 3 shorter length races providing good practise of starts and mark roundings among other boats.

Prior to setting out onto the water, the crews abandoned the club for a short while to help assist a member to move his boat under construction. We are all looking forward to the Christening!

On the race course, the breeze started SSW and moved throughout the day to SE. With the SSW winds coming off the shore there were variations in strength and direction. In race 1, Relience 17 and SNAffU were declared a dead heat, too close for the race officers to declare a difference. Race 2 was again closely fought between these 2 crews, but Race 3, Relience 17 had the upper hand from the starting hooter.

Next race day is day 2 of the Winter Series, July 7.
