Quartet Bowl Race #2 Results

On Sunday it was Race #2 of the Quartet Bowl. Seven yachts participated.

With a bit of ESE in the breeze at the start it was tempting to make a run for the start line with spinnaker at the ready. Let’s just say some starts and sets were better than others! With the light winds and the easterly breeze the beat back up the Hawkesbury was always going to be time consuming. There were also light patches coming back up Pittwater that needed to be avoided. Chaos Theory, helmed by Karl Nielsen, showed her class in the conditions. Her smiling red bow led the fleet back up Pittwater and she took victory by nearly 10 minutes. Sorry Karl, but that’s a handicap penalty coming your way! Second place was very tight, with Pirihi helmed by Ritchie Venn finding a gap between Panchax and Just Magic II to beat them to the line. Just a bit over two minutes separated 2nd to 5th.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) had the steady breeze at 9kt with gusts of 11-12kt mainly from the E/ESE. It was similar on Pittwater and the Hawkesbury.
We raced the 11.6Nm course #32 – J
The race was handicapped for a ‘slowboat’ time of 185 minutes. The mid-fleet time was 205 minutes, so it was a bit slower than I expected. On corrected time, Beau Soleil would have pushed up the order.
