Saturday Sailing

Kirk Marcolina

The first Point Score heats of the season made for some interesting sailing, with a typically gusty shifty 18-25kt southerly breeze in Double Bay, complicated by a persistent shift to the left and decreasing pressure throughout the afternoon.  Get on the wrong side of the course at your peril, as many found out the hard way.
 
We had over 30 boats on the water, including welcome guest appearances from some of the top talent from both MHASC and VYC, which served to intensify the already-stiff competition. 
 
The winners on adjusted time were Fernando Gonzales and Gerry Donohoe in the Standards, and Robert Young and Alistair Sutherland in the Radials.  Brooke Wilson turned in an excellent performance in the 4.7s.
 
Resident sailors were very appreciative of the new concrete works that made getting in and out of the club a dream.  Thanks to Mike Gentry and another mystery volunteer for filling in around the edges of the concrete!
 
This coming Saturday is Heats 3 and 4 of the Spring Point Score.  Briefing at 1pm, first warning signal at 2pm.

 Big thanks to our helpers - big and little - that assisted on Saturday.
