She is looking pretty breezy sunday.... bring it on!


Somehow I don't think we have a chance on handicap...

The weather gods are definitely not on our side with this event.


We rescheduled after too much breeze two weeks ago into one of the few gaps in the busy winter racing program losing a few boats in the process with diary clashes.


The forecast 5-7 knot gradient breeze was about but was negated by a sea breeze that turned up just as we wanted to go racing. Of course the gradient breeze reappeared as we motored home at 1400hrs.




Like usual thanks to all the volunteers from the club and the Y88 association. Now we move onto the SSANZ Two Handeds and will get on with planning a new event "Three Handed Champs" at the end of the year.

Oh well it was a nice day on the water. We caught up with heaps of people and drank beers on an awesome sunny winters day. I just wish I had taken the fishing rod out.

Thanks to the race committee for sticking it out as well.
