Avalon Series Race #2 Results

 

On Sunday, it was Race #2 of the Avalon Series. Eleven yachts participated. We welcomed two new yachts, helmed by existing club members. Ralf Moller took out his fancy (and fast) looking Hanse 400 ‘Liberty’, and Barry Black has swapped Stag for ‘High Jinks’, a Traditional 30.

It was largely a case of follow the leader. The breeze seemed to flow pretty steadily down the middle of Pittwater so there were limited opportunities to make tactical gains or losses. The notable exception was Kama III, helmed by David Cunningham. She worked her way through the fleet. High Jinks didn’t have the best first race – most likely due to a dirty bottom with Barry away for the start of the season. On the first leg to ‘K’ staying high enough to make it to the mark was a bit of a challenge, but most yachts made it there predominantly on starboard. Laura, helmed by David Boyd had a tight tussle with Goldfinger, helmed by Jan Evans. Goldfinger goosewinged her way to the Rp mark and then ferociously tacked her way from Towlers to Stokes. That proved the difference, with Goldfinger taking out first place. Well done. Laura took out second and Kama III took out third. A special mention to Karl Nielsen who solo sailed Chaos Theory.


The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ time of 180 minutes. The mid-fleet time was 160 minutes, so it was a faster race than I expected. That said, corrected time results were pretty similar.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) had the breeze at about 13-17kt with gusts of 16-19kt mainly from the NNE. It was similar on Pittwater, maybe a bit lighter and mostly NE.
We raced the 11.7Nm course #1 – K, Rp, T, S, N
