WMRMYC Inc Winter Scratch Series RD 2, Manly Harbour - 5th June 2016

After a crazy 2 days of bad weather in Brisbane, the clouds disappeared and the blue sky shone through all day but brought with it cool temperatures and a gusty westerly wind.

We had a total of 10 races.  The course was a reaching start and two windward leeward legs then a reach back to the finish.  Everyone including myself struggled at times with the varying wind angle up to 50 degrees.  A fair few of us had sheet lines getting caught and unfortunately some early retirements as the wind took hold of some boats.

Noel Francis and Dale Smith are really starting to improve and John Dousi is sailing well with his Cheinz.  Mike kept me honest all day as well as Peter Kemp who is always consistent.

Good to see Curtis has joined the club and should take delivery of John’s Mojo soon.

Big thanks again to Ian for PRO.  Also John for the scoring for the day.

Garth Halton #63 soon to be #99
