WMRMYC Inc Handicap Winter Series Round 4, Manly - 27th August 2017

Handicap Racing -  27 August, 2017.

A typical shifty light south westerly wind greeted the 11 skippers for our club handicap racing today. Wins were shared among 8 skippers today and only 8 points separated the first 7 place getters. Obviously our handicap system works well.

After a short break the wind moved around to the north east and a new course was set. The top mark had a clearance buoy added and a gate was set for the bottom mark which made an interesting choice before going to windward. Should I go left or right.

The wind remained  fairly constant which made for some fairly close finishes.  Congratulations to all competitors today as any penalties incurred while racing were done swiftly.

Special thanks to Dennis for doing O.O.D. duties today and to Scott for our BBQ which is always much appreciated by the skippers.
