The last race was a Pointscore Event, on Saturday 23 January, with 7 club members racing and finishing, and 3 guests. Thanks to Geoff Carne who set a great course despite the shift from S to NE while he was setting up the course. The winds were ideal ranging from 8-10 knots with prominent shifts in the gusts and a consistent shift up the course. Heading seaward was favoured in contrast to the usual tactic of heading to the beach side when sailing upwind in a NE wind. The Pointscore was won by John Anderson (Hunter 216) sailing off 28 minutes, from a fast finishing Beau and Lachlan McLean (505) who started off 11 minutes. The margin after 90 minutes of racing was 22 seconds!!!! The entire fleet finished within 5 minutes showing the benefit of the handicaps, which created great tussles as the backmarkers moved through the early starters and the fleet bunched up at the end.
The overall season results to date are: POINTSCORE => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral), and Geoff Carne (Laser) in Third Place overall. CHAMPIONSHIP => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral) and Beau & Lachlan McLean (505) in Third Place overall. SPRINTS => Merv Lotze (Spiral) is First, followed by Mike Wootten (Spiral) and Dave Ginty (Spiral) in Third Place overall.
The next race is a Championship & Sprints Event on 30 January 2021 with Richard Pryor on duty. See You There and Then!
