WMRMYC Inc Summer Scratch Series RD 6, Manly Harbour - 3rd April 2016

Great to be back in the winner’s circle again although by only one point.  Eleven skippers greeted the starter for race one in a light easterly breeze.  An outgoing tide and plenty of weed in the water made sailing interesting.

A win was sometimes decided by how much weed you had collected on your keel.  Luffing into the wind before starting was a help.

The wins were shared between five skippers today.  John Gower and Garth both sailed well.  Only three points between first and third place.  It was very close sailing.  Mike as usual sailed well and it was good to see Steve Zaphir winning one race today with his new V9.  This boat looks pretty quick and this combination will only improve.

It was good to welcome back Bo after a long illness.  Penalties were done by offending skippers and a good day had by all.
