Congratulations to Greg Westerberg for his win on the day.
Sailing was anticipated to be in stiff Westerlies at 15-20 Kts, but it started at around 10-12 kts gusting to 15kts, just enough grunt to make everyone change down to B rigs after the first race. Racing commenced with signs of a bit of drizzle, but it fizzed and the morning turned into an overcast but comfortable day for sailing.
It was interesting watching the onshore tactics of Harold who kept his boat on the hard giving him just enough time to get to his next start. He had developed a leak resulting from massive bow alterations during the week. The challenges when building your own, but fulfilling at the end of the day when it comes together. Harold managed to get the MR MOST IMPROVED for the day with his handicap reduction over the morning. Well done for managing a 2nd on the day. Ian managed to pip Colin for 3rd place on the day and retains his leading position on the overall standings for this years Handicap Series.
The wind was variable both in strength and direction over the morning, with chop to contend with down at the bottom end forming standing waves making it necessary to change gears in early stages of the beat to power through the chop.
