Koolong and BWS Race #2 Results

On Sunday it was the Race #2 of the Koolong and the Blue Water Shield. Four yachts participated in the Koolong and six in the Blue Water Shield.

The courses were well set with the wind steady from the NE. Koolong was the first off, although Bangalla went with the drop of the Blue Peter flag rather than the division flag. What was she thinking! Anyhow luckily Wimmera had to dip the line and Bangalla noticed the Division 1 flag was still up. That was a wasted two minutes! Wimmera, helmed by Glenn Barnes, gained at nearly every leg, and stretched her lead to a bit over 7 minutes by the end of the race. Well done to the team. Meanwhile High Jinks blew her main and had to retire. Hopefully Barry can repair it in quick order. The handicap order was the same as scratch, with Wimmera taking the honours, followed by Bangalla and then Under Pressure. In the Blue Water Shield, it was a much closer race on handicap with only six minutes of corrected time separating the fleet, and only 2 seconds separating the top two positions.

Oh, if only that one tack was a bit cleaner. With only one downwind leg there wasn’t much spinnaker action, with only Bob Batchelor’s Beau Soleil seen flying her kite. That got her up to third position on handicap. Second place went to Chaos Theory, helmed by Karl Nielsen. Top spot, for the second race in a row, went to Shibumi, helmed by Simon Player. She is much improved on her handicap from the 2015-16 season. On scratch, Element helmed by Rob Slack, dominated the race. She finished 11 minutes ahead of Chaos Theory.

 

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 9-16kt with gusts of 11-18kt mainly from the NNE. It was similar on Pittwater and Broken Bay, but more from the NE.
