Wednesday 1 June
The UNi-PRO Midweek Mariners Series I and the Doctors of Northcote Spinnaker Series I wrapped up last Wednesday, with 11 pursuit and 12 spinnaker starters.
In the pursuit race, Laafin was the winner of Race 10, with Charlotte finishing second and Obsession third.
Tigris took out the PHS race, with Matador second and Remedy third. On AMS, the places were changed around a bit, with Remedy first, Matador second and Tigris third. And as is often the case, there were not enough boats to score IRC.
Well done to Rock N Roll for winning the spinnaker series on PHS and taking home the very generous Doctors of Northcote cash prize; and also to Seaya for finishing second and Red Dog for finishing third.
And great work Vagrant for taking out the AMS series, with Matador second and Red Dog third.
A big thank you to our sponsors – Ken Simpson from UNi-PRO, and Jim Lynch from Doctors of Northcote – for their fantastic support of the two series.
Saturday 4 June
Unfortunately no racing took place on Saturday for the JH McDonald Pursuit Series, due to a lack of breeze. This also put paid to the start practice for novices in the morning.
Sunday 5 June
Again, no wind appeared for us on Sunday, for the AWKR Start Practice. Four boats got out there anyway for a brief motor/sail, and the Race Committee ran through a sequence to give competitors a refresher.
Thanks to all our volunteers for this week: John Taylor, Selwyn Stokes, Dave Croke, Andrew Gluth, Doug Whitby, Ross Flood, Scott Allbutt, Alistair Hart, Michelle Yan, Tony Lukeman, and Peter Yoon.
