Avalon Series Race #8 Results

Last Sunday it was Race #8 of the Avalon Series, followed by the Club Picnic. Thirteen yachts participated in the race.

Goldfinger, helmed by Jan Evans, got the shock of the day. She was not the ‘slowboat’ and had to start on ‘1’. She was not helped by a mistake in the start sequence, but that cost her less than a minute. She quickly went to the early lead and it was up to the rest of the fleet to chase her down. Racing was tight at the back of the fleet, with the four Etchells and Just Magic II looking to make the most of the large wind shifts and claw their way through the fleet. Lighter winds near the Rocky Point mark proved the downfall of a number of yachts. Getting from Towlers back up to Stokes in wind proved to be pivotal. Just Imagine did well and started to put the pressure on Goldfinger’s lead. Under Pressure, helmed by Toni Fox, best managed the conditions. She took out first place. On elapsed times she beat home all but Resurgent. What a race! Resurgent, helmed by Rick Hall, also had a sensational race, finishing just 41 seconds behind Under Pressure. Most of the yachties were a bit late to the Club Picnic, but the good news was we had already won all the events of the day. Just to finish off an eventful day, Yellow Glenn with the BBQ on board ran out of fuel in the middle of Pittwater!

The win for Under Pressure saw her take out the title, the Force 8 cup, on 21 points. Well done to Toni and her team. What a great season!! Second place went to Goldfinger on 23 points and third place went to Iluka on 27.6 points.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were 9-16kt, with gusts 16-21kt, mainly from the N. It was similar on Pittwater but a bit lighter and more from the NNW.

We race the 11.6Nm course #1 – K, Rp, T, S N with a finish off Portuguese Beach (where the Club Picnic has held).

The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ time of 155 minutes, given an expected finish time of 1:35pm. The mid-fleet finish time was 1:53pm, so it was a bit of a slower race. That said, the order on corrected time was pretty similar.
