In stark contrast with the previous weekend, the junior squad was met with wind conditions that were light with barely a gust from the north east which made getting out from the pond a slow task. Fortunately, conditions picked up slightly with a change from the south with winds at 8 knots.
Despite the light winds getting out on the water was most enjoyable, as per two weeks ago we had five quests out on the water again and that’s with five of our regular sailors away. Excitingly it looks like we’ve got even more new juniors starting next week so I’m tipping there will be all six Quests out this weekend so here’s hoping the weather is favorable.
Happy to report no burnt snags on the weekend, all prepared masterfully by Nick Maria.
The expansion of the group has been excellent. I know I sound like a broken record but credit to the junior squad members, parents, and RMSTA for getting the message out and generating interest. As I mentioned last week there exists a real opportunity to grow RMYS a hub of junior racing in Victoria with RS Quests as our platform and have an ultra-competitive intra club racing program.
