It was another wild day on Sydney harbour, with the southerly breeze consistently above 20-25kts and repeatedly gusting >30kts, punctuated by the odd 14kt lull!
Considering the weather, the long weekend, and the footy finals, we had a very credible fleet of 16 boats turn out for sprint racing, including our plucky new member, Emily Ball, who not only sailed all the races, but also spent the time between races reaching back and forth behind the start line at high speed! Thanks to James Tudball and Candice Cushway, who ran three excellent 20min sprint races until everyone was exhausted and, in between, towed Peter Collie back to shore with a broken mast. And thanks also to Shirley Roach, who staffed the canteen solo, providing sustenance in the form of our famous signature toasties! We were delighted to have two visitors from VYC.
We all got back to shore in time for the second half of the footy and well-earned beers on the deck!
