Another great race from SSANZ.  Thanks to all those who give their time for us to enjoy an excuse to leap off the couch on a winters day....

 

The brief Y88 report:

 

Baltic 50, mint sailing conditions after the excitement of the 100 and a great way to end the Two Handed Series.

Congratulations to Nathan Williams on Slipstream for another faultless race, managing to carry his number one genny right through (I think)

Big ups to Leigh on Voodoo for a well fought second, picking the right headsail at the bottom of the run and grinding down then passing Sailor Moon and War Machine carrying no. 1's on the windy beat from Rakino to Motuihe.

 

Jacko on Sailor Moon lost time changing head sails but eventually passed the War Machine between Browns and Bean Rock. WM didnt help themselves with a crash tack to avoid a surprise starboard tacker, taking a 720 turn as a result.

Not quite such a good result for the 88s in the cruising division with Kristina 7th on h'cap and Blondie 12th.

Looked like a great day out there. I watched some of the fleet finish from Orakei wharf and took a few pics. There was a fair bit of outgoing tide making sure everyone had to keep working hard to the end!

Elly, looks like a fair bit of inverse mast bend, did something happen on the downwind leg?
