PRYC Results

WMRMYC Inc Winter Handicap Series RD 1, Manly Marina - 21st May 2017

Racing commenced today after the Club’s Annual General Meeting. The fine work done last year by the outgoing executive committee was recognised by all. Thanks fellows.

Sailing commenced in a light to very light mainly southerly breeze. Sixteen yachts took part in the racing today.  Our Commodores cup winner and elder statesman Jack Ford struggled with conditions today, but with a bit more breeze I am sure he will be back in the major p lacings.  New comer Leo managed one good placing and his son was seen helping a few boats off the rocks today, mine included.  Thanks young fellow.  Good places were had by Dale, Allan, Dennis, Ian and Andrew who managed three seconds.  The top places today were taken up by the backmarkers as they showed a little more skill in these very light winds.

Conversation at our club BBQ today seemed centred around the very recent World Championships.  Is it the boat or is it the skipper?  Personally I think the skipper is the dominate factor however a champion skipper needs a competitive boat.  

Once again thanks to Bruce for scoring and photos, to John Gower for all the work he puts in to the BBQ after our racing and also to John Mc for his computer talents.
