WMRMYC Inc Winter Scratch Series RD 4, Carbrook - 3rd August 2014

We arrived at Carbrook hoping for a steady breeze and thinking about the those attending Kawana for the Eddie Cowell regatta. 6 of us faced the start line,the South-Easter filled in just in time. 10 races in A rig  with Tony, John and I sharing the wins.

Scott prevailed at the end of the day, followed by Tony and then John. Cheers Scott WARTON.

A small band of five club members and a visitor sailed at Carbrook on Sunday 3rd August for the fourth round of the Winter Scratch Points Series.  Skipper numbers were down for the event on this occasion as there were at least five (5) of our regular club members competing in the ‘Eddie Cowell Perpetual Trophy’ which is run by the Club Kawana Radio Yacht Club on the Sunshine Coast (our club is pleased to see our members travelling further afield to gain regatta experience on a competitive level).

For a third consecutive club event, results reveal Scott WARTON has blitzed the field to win the day by placing first in no less than six of the ten races completed, with no placing lower than second position overall for Scott.  Tony GREY and Commodore John McLACHLAN alternated between second and third placing behind Scott, while filling first place twice each where Scott resigned his lead.

Tom PURSIHEIMO suffered two severe setbacks with maximum points incurred in two heats, but otherwise maintained respectable mid-fleet placings throughout the day. Dennis PATTERSON wasn’t able to sail so he kindly officiated the day and also took the all-important photos. This allowed novice John D*** to sail through for a reliable 5th placing and still not last on the day – any day your boat stays on top of the water John D*** is a good sailing day! Experience will see improvements.

Thanks to everyone who was able to support the club during a major regatta weekend and we look forward to seeing our Kawana delegates back on the water with us for the next club points day event.
