On Wednesday for the Morse Air Systems Midweek Mariners Series II, Doctors of Northcote Winter Spinnaker Series II and Overnewton Trophy Winter Spinnaker Series II, there was a strong wind warning with consistent gusts of 32 knots. Unfortunately, the race was cancelled, but so far this week is looking better with 15-20 knot northerlies on the cards.
Thanks to Ian Guyett, Selwyn Stokes, Mike Allnutt and Andrew Gluth for coming down and being prepared to run the race.
