Tranquil Waters Retirement Village Handicap Regatta - 28th April 2013

Eleven skippers arrived to compete on a beautiful sunny day on a rising tide but with little wind and some loose seagrass. Racing commenced on time at 10-30am at the Victoroa Point beach next to the Retirement Village.
The course set was a triangle and a sausage. In the first race two boats 89, Dave Moore and 06, John Holland lost frequency control at the windward mark and commenced sailing to Stradbroke Island by themselves. Dave quickly set out to rescue them successfully. The breeze was reducing to 2-4 knots South East and created quite a sailing challenge with the six inch waves. Only six races were completed. John Holland and Dave Moore were PRO’s for the remaining races, thankyou guys.

At race 5, the second last race, the scores were Bradley Ginnivan on 12, John McLachlan on 13.3 and four skippers tied for third on 14, Jack Ford, Andrew Milne, Bernie Cornish and Scott Warton. In the last race John was coming second but fouled and stayed on the wing mark for that race.
A lovely barbecue lunch was again provided by Tranquil Waters Retirement Village which was enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to winner Bradley Ginnivan, second Andrew Milne (last years winner) and third Bernie Cornish.
