Wednesday 11 May
A north to north-westerly breeze at 15 to 25 knots greeted the 10 brave yacht crews who competed in Race 7 of the UNi-PRO Midweek Mariners and Doctors of Northcote Spinnaker series.
Revenge was the winner of the pursuit race, and with only three starters, this was the only place awarded. Matador was first, Sunshine second, and Rock N Roll third in the spinnakers on PHS. Matador also got the win on AMS. Sea Eagle took out Best Start on five seconds.
Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 May
Race 1 of the JH McDonald Winter Pursuit Series got under way on Saturday in a fresh northerly. Twenty three boats raced and first across the line was Don McDonell aboard Red Dog. Tigris was second, and third went to Anastasia.
Many thanks to the tower volunteers: Race Officer Ross Flood, Alan Watkins (Sunshine) and Richard O’Beirne (Revenge) for all giving up a day on the water to run today’s race.
Also on Saturday, Race Officer Alistair Hart and a dedicated team of volunteers ran the first four races of the Noelex Australian Championships on a laid course off RMYS. On Sunday they ran a further two races to complete the series and the competitors were very appreciative of the well-run racing. Many thanks to the following people for their support on the race courses over the weekend:
- Al Hart, Dave Croke, Michelle Yan, and Sue Greaves on William Paterson
- John Kennedy, Tim Wilson, Graham Dicker, Kevin Corcoran, Michael Morse, and Marc Tracy
And thank you to HBYC for lending their boat Privateer to us on Sunday.
