Club Championship races 1, 2 and 3

3 races were conducted today for the Club Championship. The races were conducted in NE sea breeze, and lumpy seas. The wind increased throughout the afternoon, starting in about 12 knots and closing out the day in 15+ knot winds. The sea state increased as the winds increased providing fun surfing conditions downwind.

Welcome to some new faces to the club and welcome back to returning crews from competing in regattas around the country. Today was the first events in the second half of the season and the first events for 2020. They were also the first the races for the 2019/20 Club Championship.

The course for race 1 was an Olympic triangle course, race 2 was a 3 lap windward-leeward and Rae 3 was another Olympic triangle course. (Results attached/following)

There will be more racing again next week – the club will be conducting the rescheduled Merv Anderson Sprint Series. This event’s plan is to have many races conducted on a short course to provide good practise for starts and close mark roundings. We hope to see you there.
