WMRMYC Inc Handicap Winter Series Round 2, Manly - 18th June 2017

A beautiful winter's morning greeted 15 Skippers for round two of the handicap racing. There wasn't much wind but the direction was perfect for an up and down course X3.

John McLachlan got off to a good start winning the first race of the day.  Scott Warton was on the pace winning races 2 and 3, his handicap would blowout to +60 Seconds. Alex Malberg had a good win in race 4 as did Alan Bryant in race 5.

The racing was frustrating at times as the winds could drop out during the race and a comfortable lead could be swallowed up in no time as the fleet behind would be bringing down the coming breeze.

Congratulations Peter Sherwood for winning the day also to Russell Grey for 2nd placing.

A good day was had by all under a friendly atmosphere. Thank you Scott the cooking the sausages and onions. A nice barbecue is a great way to end a pleasant days sailing.
