Quartet Bowl Race #1 Results

 

On Sunday, it was Race #1 of the Quartet Bowl. Ten yachts participated in the race.

Despite the benign conditions there was plenty of action. The fleet had out its largest spinnakers on the run down the Hawkesbury to the Juno mark. Diablo was doing well until she had spinnaker troubles, with the spinnaker halyard jamming at the mechanism at the top of her mast. She tried to call for help from the rest of the fleet and from the Club, but was not heard on the VHF. In the end, Marine Rescue from Cottage Point came to her aid, including climbing her mast to release the spinnaker clip. We’re glad Jean and Dick got back safely in the end. Meanwhile, not knowing the extent to Diablo’s issues, the rest of the fleet worked its way back up the Hawkesbury into Pittwater. The tactic of working the West Head shoreline worked a treat with Resurgent, Bangallla and Panchax all rounding West Head within yelling distance. On the journey back up Pittwater the left side, taken by Panchax helmed by Steve Parker, proved the best. She took out the win. Second place went to Bangalla and third place went to Resurgent.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) were about 8-10kt from the E. On Pittwater and on the Hawkesbury it was pretty similar, initially from the SE turning ESE.
We raced the 11.6Nm course #32 – J

The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ of 185 minutes, and the mid-fleet time was 216 minutes.
