WMRMYC Inc- Handicap Summer Series Round 3, Manly –18th January 2015
Weather: Scattered clouds, 36°, 90% humidity, Winds: light and variable
Tide: Outgoing low at 14:22 (0.59)

John McLachlan, Scott Warton, Peter Kemp and Bradley Ginnivan laid the marks and set aport course of large triangles to a downwind finish. The light winds oscillated which frustrated the fleet.Scott Warton and Tony Grey set the bar high in the first race coming in at 1st and 2nd respectively. The wind was less kind in the second race and morning tea was called early to allow time for the wind to strengthen (or disappear completely).
Morning Tea was extra special with fresh chocolate biscuits from Emma Zaphir.

Racing continued with course adjustments to make the best of the conditions. There were 14 starters. 8 races were completedin the challenging conditions and 1st place was shared by 8 skippers. John Dousi’s Cheinz is looking impressive. Ian Foster finished the day well. Bradley Ginnivan sailed well and maintained the pressure on the fleet. John Holland and Bernie Cornish capitalised on wind shifts to find their wins.

A good day’s racing in challenging conditions.
Thank you to all the officials – seamlessly efficient.

See you on the water.
Stephen ZAPHIR
