WMRMYC Inc Winter Scratch Series RD 4 , Carbrook - 8th August 2013

RACE REPORT – 5th August, 2013.

We were greeted this morning with clear skies and light SW-W winds.  Most boats were on the water early getting a bit of practice in.  Glen and Garry from Moreton Club joined us for the days racing.  Glen managed 4th and Garry 8th.  The first eight skippers on the race board all had a turn at O.O.D. for a race.  Light and shifty winds made sure the wins were spread around and five  skippers had wins.  Matt, Garry and Andrew had one each,  Scott three and myself four.  John Holland had radio troubles which did not help his result.  Allan scored a couple of seconds and Andrea a third.

Racing in these light conditions was never easy and always challenging.  The wind constantly changed both in direction and velocity, or lack of it.  Skippers had to be ready to take advantage of any subtle change in the wind.  Good acceleration helps and by Bantock Fraktal certainly helped me in that regard.

All in all it was a most pleasant day and sailed in a very friendly manner.


Photos coming.
