WMRMYC Inc Handicap Summer Series Round 1, Manly - 19th November 2017

SUN 19th November 2017 168Well, the forecasts were correct. There was something there for everybody. The wind direction constantly varied during the morning which required the sailing committee to consider course changes for each race.

A heavy rain squall followed by a dead calm made race three interesting.  Because of the heavy rain and the run off into the harbour, some boats suffered badly with debris on their keel.

A break was taken, hoping that the conditions would settle. Two more races were run but, with the outgoing tide, the debris problem increased and an end to the days racing was called.

Despite the varying conditions, and the debris, the competition between  individual boats was keen and close during all races with some very close finishes.

The final result shows that three boats tied for first place. This must be a record for the club.

For some though, the best part of the day was the sausage sizzle.
