Racing Report – Week ending 18-08-2019

An unusual occurrence for this winter season – both scheduled RMYS races were completed.

Wednesday was the first race of the final series in the Midweek Mariners pursuit and spinnaker pursuit races.

It was a partly sunny day with 10-15 knot winds throughout the course of the afternoon.

Saturday was a sparkling winter day – sunshine, clear skies, light winds and flat seas – for the 6th race in the JH McDonald pursuit series.

The final Classic Yacht Association Winter Series race on Sunday was blown out as far as most competitors were concerned.  Refer https://www.classic-yacht.asn.au/  for details.
