Races 1 and 2 of the Summer Series were conducted today and the threat of late storms held off for a perfect days sailing.
The PRO today selected a Triangle-Sausage-Triangle course from the handbook and race 1 was run with a fickle light NE breeze and made for tight first windward mark roundings. It took most of the race for the cobwebs to be blown out and the boats found their groove. PRO elected to realign the course during the break between races and the breeze built to about 10kts before the start of the second race. The starts were hotly contested today and Race 2 was no different with boats bailing-out at the favoured boat-end of the line – all managed to get away cleanly and without serious incident.
It was great to see the return of racing and while the clubhouse activities may have not continued after racing, the boat park was an active area for discussion and debrief. Results for todays racing can be found here.
Next race day is the King of Bramble Bay Regatta 3-4 October.
