Beautiful day for the Bramble Bay Shield

Yesterday’s racing for the Bramble Bay Shield was conducted in light conditions that showcased the beauty of Moreton Bay.

Race 1 was started at 11:00 and conditions were around 5kts from the NE with the wind oscillating about 10 degrees. Patrick Kills Oysters got away from the fleet, but there were some close mark rounding amongst the Flying Fifteens behind them. Race 2 had a slight increase in breeze throughout the race building to about 8 knots. Again with oscillations in the breeze, teams started to try using these shifts as well as the increase in tidal flow for tactical advantage.

A beautiful day on the water and a reminder that Winter is not far away. Full results can be found by clicking here.

Next event is the Ted Rice Shield on the 12th May. This is event will be followed by the club’s AGM.

Bramble Bay Shield

Racing for the Bramble Bay Shield is on this coming Sunday. First warning signal is scheduled for 11:00, not 12:00 as previously stated. This is to coordinate with a high tide of 10:36 and to allow retrieving boats up the ramp while still having a reasonable amount of water.

Conditions are currently predicted to be light from the East.
