Wednesday 6 May
Race 6 of the UNi-Pro Midweek Mariners Series I was held in blustery northwesterly winds reaching 30 knots and gusting. Fourteen competitors made it to the start line. Xit Strategy took out 1st place, Chardonnay won the race out of the Half Ton boats and Mrs Overnewton claimed best start on 4 seconds. Mountain Goat of the Day went to Jimmy O on Sunshine for multiple chicken gybes at F mark, which caused a commotion.
