Wednesday 8 July
Race 5 of the Morse Air Systems Midweek Mariners had a steady northerly breeze of 8-18 knots and smooth seas.
Silk came 1st on PHS, Vagrant took out AMS and Astarte placed 1st in the Half Ton Challenge.
Leilani claimed best start with a time of 1 second.
There were no nominations for Mountain Goat of the Day, though the tower crew probably would have been eligible for having the camera on the incorrect setting (they took photos instead of video).
On Saturday Race 3 of the Club Marine Winter Series was run in a dying breeze, which started with 12 knots and dropped back to 2 knots before climbing back to around 7 knots just in time to get a finish in. The breeze couldn’t decide which direction it wanted to blow from, changing from west to south-west, then south-east and finally becoming a northerly.
Division 2 winners were Caffe Latte (AMS) and Salamander III (IRC and PHS)
