2019 Saturday series Event 2

18th May 2019

Great conditions for the A+ rig as nine skippers turned out for our second event in the Saturday Series. Not all own a set yet, and for those that did it was a clear advantage.

With the wind from the West, a triangular course was set, with a longish beat to the windward mark, then reach across, and then a run down to a gate, with a beat to the finish line. With a break for lunch midway through proceedings, we managed ten races in the time before calling it a day.

Garry sailed consistently all event taking seven bullets, and won the day comfortably, with Bob and Ken taking second and third spots respectively.

So a great day was had, and with no crabbers on our bank to hinder us helped immensely, if only it was like that every time.

Our next outing for the 65, is on Thurs 23rd May 6.30pm start.
