The wind today was a gentle 0 to 8 Km/h from the ENE with some tricky calm areas around the top marks.
There were 9 skippers and several spectators turn up to enjoy the sunshine although the light conditions were a little frustrating.Read More
Six boats showed up to the pond today for some scratch racing. Also a couple of new boats down for a practise sail. The wind was fairly steady 10 to 16Km/h from the west , but as per last week
we had lots of shifts happening, requiring several tacks on shifts to get to the windward mark
in the shelter of the west bank, where it was even more flukey.Read More
HK WINS THE DAY
Sailing got started after removal of the weed build up left by the rain event of last week.
The wind of the day was variable both in strength and direction, starting in the NE and moving to the Nth over the morning. We managed to get 11 races in before the weather set in for the day.
Eight yachts on the pond today for some scratch racing. Also a couple of new boats down for a practise sail. The wind was fairly steady from the east, allowing for a long beat to the windward marks.
Geoff O was back after missing a couple of weeks and continued his winning ways to take out 1st place, although he was pushed at times by the rest of the fleet.Read More
