On the day 4 Beach Catamarans, 1 trailer sailer, and 8 centerboard yachts graced the start line.
The course was expertly set by our resident Yachting NZ official Dave Hemsley. A windward leeward course which to this multihull sailor seemed to favoured the mono hulls. Regardless, one lap for the mono’s and 2 for the Catamarans.
Two races were completed by the entire fleet, and while a few of the catamaran skippers were off showboating, the centerboard monohulls had a third race.
Well done to all and a big thanks to Dave and Dave for their committee boat work. Positions were shared around, although line honours have to go to Bradley sailing his Laser and Geoff in his buffalo catamaran. Well done to Sue on her win in the 3rd race and to our youngest competitor Leo a gutsy performance in a strong breeze with considerable wave action.
Next race date Sunday February 19th if sufficient interest. Beach Road 2pm briefing.
