Winter Series Race #2 Results

On Sunday it was Race #2 of the Winter Series. Thirteen yachts participated in the race.

We had another good turnout for the Winter Series. It was the last weekend in Autumn and we were treated with sun and wind. On the first leg the early starters had a tough first beat into a NW wind, while the back markers benefited as the wind swung to the NNW allowing them to lay the first mark on one tack. On the leg to Stokes, you had to stay well clear of Longnose Point, or suffer the consequences of seeing yachts pass you on the right! The race though was decided by tactics on the Sp to Tp leg. Pretty simply the left side paid. Bandaleni, helmed by Greg Kowalski, was seen steaming along the left. So too, were Panchax and then Kama III with strong flow over her white spinnaker. There was still some work to get done making your way around the Longnose mark where the wind was light and patchy. That proved the downfall of some of the heavier yachts. The winner on the day was Bandaleni, followed in 2nd place by Panchax, helmed by Steve Parker and Kama III, helmed by David Cunningham, in 3rd spot.

 The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ time of 120 minutes, given an expected finish time of 1:40pm (with the late 11:40am start). The mid-fleet finish time was 2:02pm, so it was a bit slower than expected. The order on corrected time was pretty similar.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were 12-15kt, with gusts 16-23kt, mainly from the NNW. It was similar on Pittwater.
We raced the 7.9Nm course NW #22 – T, S, Sp, S, Sp, Tp, Lp, C

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, Here’s Trouble, Under Pressure).
