WMRMYC Inc Summer Handicap Series RD 3, Manly Harbour - 17th January 2016

RACE REPORT– Handicap Summer Series Round 3.

Eleven skippers attended the day at Manly on Sunday 17th January 2016.  Cloudy 25 Degree morning, medium to strong gusty conditions.

We all started the day with B rig as the wind was roughly around about 15-20 knots.  We did about 4 races up til morning tea break was called then changed to A rig as the wind dropped a little to 12-15 knots.

As part of the course was shaded from the gusts most of the time it was easy to carry A rig.  Most of the skippers were handicapped off between 40-80 seconds.  The course was windward return twice around.

Scoring was tight up til the morning break as 3 or 4 skippers were all equal placed.  Both Peter & John ended up with 0.3 of a point between them for 2nd & 3rd places.  Very well sailed John with an older V5.  Well done to all the skippers in trying conditions at times.

Handicap racing is all about being consistent.
