Avalon Series Race #1 Results

 

On Sunday, it was Race #1 of the Avalon Series. Despite the brilliant sunny conditions, only seven yachts participated in the race.

Goldfinger was in the unusual position of having to wait a bit to start after the starter’s gun had sounded. Laura took advantage of her scratch start to sail an excellent race in the steady, but light conditions. She was, however, being chased down in what was an exciting finish. In the light conditions, the race was shortened to finish off the ‘N’ mark. That created the exciting finish, with only 2½ minutes between 1st and 5th position. Laura, helmed by David Boyd, hung on to win by 47 seconds. Well done. Wimmera, helmed by Ian Craig, took out second place, followed soon after by Resurgent, helmed by Rick Hall.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were 9-10kt, with gusts 11-13kt, from the SE turning to E. On Pittwater it was pretty similar, but mainly from the SE.
We raced the 11.7Nm course #1 – K, Rp, T, S, N

The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ of 180 minutes, and the mid-fleet time was 161 minutes. The results on correct time were similar, but with Resurgent having the best corrected time.
