Opening Day Trophy and Retriever Race #1 Results

 

On Sunday, it was Race #1 of the Retriever and the Opening Day Trophy. Six yachts participated in the race.

It was a small turnout on Father’s Day, but there was plenty of wind and sun for those on the water. The first leg was very competitive with the western shore line paying. Under Pressure was looking fast. On the second leg, Resurgent with spinnaker kept to the right and built up a handy lead. The gybe near Taylors Point tested crews, especially those who were two up. From there things started to go wrong. Bangalla broke her backstay and then Resurgent broke her forestay. Both were DNF. Wimmera took advantage of the conditions to streak ahead, winning on scratch by more than 12 minutes. Well done. Meanwhile Goldfinger was steadily working her way through the course in the tough conditions.

The handicap result was very close, with less than 50 seconds of corrected time between the top three yachts. Goldfinger, helmed by Jan Evans, took the Opening Day trophy by just 16 seconds of corrected time. Great effort. Second place went to Wimmera, followed by Under Pressure in third place.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were 15-21kt, with gusts 17-25kt, steady from the NNE. On Pittwater it seemed a bit stronger at times and more shifty.
We raced the 11.4Nm N course #3 – N, Tp, N, Lp, Sp
