We had about 20 boats show up for our long weekend sprint racing.  It was a gusty shifty westerly which made for some large angles and significant gains.  If you got too hot upwind, all you had to do was pinch a little, and sooner or later you would find yourself back winded and submerged backwards head first.

Thank you to our PRO, Alistair Sutherland, and our COTD, Murray Stone, who set a good course in difficult conditions and officiated with experience.  At one point the action got a bit feisty at the pin end, with certain members confusing the zero in 10 seconds with the zero in zero – anyhow, who doesn’t like a good head start.  Alistair soon had them whipped back into shape, and the afternoon proceeded smoothly thereafter, with a total of 6 short two-lap races.

This Saturday, it will be Heats 7 & 8 of the Spring Point Score.  As usual, the briefing will be at 1pm, with the first warning signal at 2pm.  See you there!
