WMRMYC Clive Brooks Scratch Trophy & Handicap RD2, Manly - 21st June 2015

Light winds greeted us, ten skippers began racing in light to medium south east breeze, with some good gusts thrown in.  The racing started at 12pm and finished at 2pm.

We managed to get 8 races completed.  The wins were shared by Allan (4) Bradley (2) and Peter (2).  Peter was a little more consistent which allowed him to win the Clive Brook’s trophy.  It was very pleasing to see Dennis Patterson sailing very well today only 1 point off 3rd place.  Overall the racing was very close with some very close finishes occurring.

WMRMYC Inc Winter Handicap Series RD 2, Manly - 21st June 2015

Eleven Boats turned up to Manly Harbour on a chilly Winters Morning. I believe it was around 20 degrees. Winds were from the South/South East ranging from 3 to 10 Knots. It was hard to tell as the wind swirled around and you needed to pick the wind shifts to be any chance.

Ian Forster No.35 set the early pace finishing first in Race 1. There were 6 different boats posting a first Place. Congratulations must go to the Handicappers who did a great job to keep the fleet together.

The new Handicap Board worked well, with all skippers clearly seeing what handicap they were on and who they had to chase. Ken Anning and Craig Jones made a return with Ken being the only Skipper to post 2 First Placings and Craig posted a 1st in R5.  Seven Handicap races were run and it was John Dousi in the Cheinz 51 coming out on top with some consistent finishes. 2nd place went to Ian Forster 35 and Third place to Ken Anning 10.=

Thanks to all competitors and the race officials for a great Day of Sailing.
