It was quite a different day to our previous two Winter Championship outings. A stiff Southerly blew in at a challenging 15 – 18 knots with some much higher gusts. Add to that, on and off rain showers made for a challenging day of racing. Despite the less than perfect weather, nearly 25 sailors competed in heats 7-9 of the Winter Championship.
The winners for the day were, Full Rigs: Sail Number 181703* (see below) (heat 7); David Newman (heats 8 and 9); Radials / 4.7s: Andrew Cox (heat 7 and 8), and Martin White (heat 9). Full results are now available in the results section of our website. Thanks to the race volunteers and to Campbell Patton’s Dad, Tim for serving up the great homemade soup to warm us up at the end of the morning.
Max Dzhura, who is keeping our winter series results needs your help in finding out the names for some anonymous sailors who raced last Sunday. Please let him know here if you are the sailor or know the owner of any of these boats: 181703 (a full rig sailor, finished first in the first race), 199028 or 202561. Thanks for your help.
