WMRMYC Inc Summer Scratch Series RD 6, Carbrook - 5th April 2015

Race Report – Ten skippers attended the scratch sailing at Carbrook on Sunday 5th April 2015 for the final round of the Summer Scratch Points Series.

When we first arrived, there was not a breath of wind on the pond and we thought we were in for another drifter.  But 15min before the start, the wind started to fill in from the West –Southwest direction. A course was set and we got underway on time.

The first few races were a bit patchy in places but the wind steadily built to a steady 5-8knots which made for a great day sail.

Andrew finally put his Pikanto back together after a bit of TLC on his winch and set his boat up back to the standard Bantock settings and showed good pace all day and finished the day with a 2nd with Scott just 1 point behind.

Allan was not far away from a podium place with a good win in R3 and some good results all day. He had a new set of sails in the car so next time watch this space. John showed good pace all day and pushed hard at all times, Steve had a win in R4 and showed good pace all day. Ken had a few good races as did John.

The racing was close all day and if you kept out of trouble you did well. It was a good day, we had breeze.

Thanks to Bruce for all the good work running the races today.
