Merv Anderson Sprints Series results.
On Sunday in variable breeze, 6 crews sailed out to the race course to compete in this years Merv Anderson Sprint Series. By the time the crews had arrived at the starting area a SE’ly change had arrived. The RO waited for a short period for the breeze settle before a the first race was started on a SE course of 130. The breeze built from 15kts over the day to have the boats competing winds gusting to 25kts in the last race.
The 1 lap W/L courses were a little longer than in previous years and the RO managed to complete 4 races before conditions looked to be getting a little unsafe.
The sprint series is run as a handicap event and the handicaps used were the handicaps given after the completion of the previous handicap event, the Winter Series. Results can be found on the Events page, or by clicking here.
The next event on the SYC calendar is the first race of the Summer Series on 14 October.
Good Luck to SYC members competing in the Flying Fifteen International – Queensland State Championships being held over the long weekend 29 September – 1 October.
