WMRMYC Inc Winter Handicap Series RD 4, Manly - 16th August 2015

Race report : 16 Aug. 20125.
Venue: Manly Boat Harbour.
Weather: Cool, 4-6 kn S- SSE.

It was almost a perfect day at the boat harbour. About half tide and rising, clean water [no weed or jelly fish], and a good sailing breeze from the south of about 4-5knots.

Unfortunately our day clashed with another major ranking event at the Sunshine Coast. As a result only eight members turned up to race.
Scott and Dennis set a windward and return course of three laps which stayed unchanged for the duration.

Bernie seemed to have the settings for the conditions right and set the pace for the first two races. Mike as usual, sailed consistently and despite his handicap managed a first and a second in the next two races. After the break, Scott seemed to make all the right moves to record two firsts a second and a forth. John Dousi, after a poor start to the day started to get some good results.

Club policy is for the committee at each meeting to reassesses each skipper’s performance at and to readjust their handicap for the following race day where it is considered necessary. While some skippers question our handicap system, it does reward skippers who sail consistently. Most of the races sailed had groups of three or more boats finishing within metres of each other and seven of the eight skippers recorded a first place.

All the races attracted passing members of the public.
