Winter Series Race #1 Results

On Sunday it was Race #1 of the Winter Series, followed by the Presentation of Trophies. Fifteen yachts participated in the race.

We had a great turnout for the first race of the Winter Series. Maybe we should have a trophy presentation every week! It was glorious Autumn sailing with a steady (but shifting) breeze and sun. It was tight racing most of the way, with a lot of congestion at the final mark rounding at Stokes. The run down to the ‘N’ mark at Sinclair Point was probably the pivotal leg. It was a bit slower on the left and it paid for those going down the middle with spinnaker up, especially for Just Magic II and Here’s Trouble. Similarly on the way back to Tp, there were lifts on the Western shore, but the wind was a bit stronger down the middle. Some yachts were parked for a while near Lp, but speed returned for everyone on the reach to Stokes. It was a close finish with Just Magic II, helmed by Chad Leggett getting home first, just under a minute ahead of Panchax, helmed by Steve Parker. In third place, just ahead of Bangalla, was Kama III, helmed by David Cunningham.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were 11-12kt, with gusts 14-15kt, mainly from the SSE. It was similar on Pittwater.

We raced the 7.8Nm course S #19 – Tp, N, Tp, Lp, S

The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ time of 120 minutes, given an expected finish time of 2:31pm. The mid-fleet finish time was 2:38pm, so it was a pretty close. The order on corrected time was pretty similar.

The elapsed times in the table below exclude the 4 minute spinnaker penalty, so deduct 4 minutes from the elapsed times of those yachts electing to use spinnaker (Just Magic II, Kama III, Bangalla, Cazbar, Here’s Trouble, Diablo, Under Pressure, + some others?).

The internet wouldn’t update, but please find a recreated results table below:
