NOW AVAILABLE => Results for October Long Weekend Regatta SATURDAY 29th & SUNDAY 30th September 2018

Results for the Last Pointscore Race held on 10 November, are now shown.
Mike Wootten set a lovely course in the delightful conditions with a ESE breeze of 6-8 knots gusting to 15, in sunny conditions. There were quite large shifts and changes over the race with the wind shifting more East as the seabreeze tried to fill in. This provided large gains for those who chose the correct side of the course early, but the shift meant that the last work was a single tack on port.

The 'rabbits' were John Anderson (Hunter 216) and Damien & Jacob Bates (Contender) who started off 24 minutes. Last to start was Nev Lotze (Impulse) off 10 minutes and guest Rick Early (Laser Full rig) off 11 minutes. The conditions make it very hard for the back markers to catch up (no planing on the reaches).

The race was won by John Anderson (Hunter 216) from Dave Braidwood (Spiral) and Damien & Jacob Bates (Contender). Dave Braidwood surged to the lead after picking the left side on the last work, but was overtaken just before the bottom mark by John Anderson. Damien & Jacob Bates (Contender) also led early, after the second work, after picking the right side of the course early in the race.

Merv Lotze (Spiral) was 4th, Nev Lotze (impulse) was 5th and guest Rick Early (Laser Full rig) was 6th. Only 7 minutes separated the first and last place getters over the 80 minute race.

The Overall Pointscore leader is John Anderson (Laser3), followed by Dave Braidwood (Spiral) and Merv Lotze (Spiral). Overall Leaders in Championship are Merv Lotze, Richard Pryor & Nev Lotze. The Sprint Leaders are Merv Lotze, Nev Lotze & Richard Pryor.

The next race is a Championship and Sprints event to be held on 17 November. Be There!! On Duty is Richard Pryor.
