Retriever Race #2 Result

On Sunday is was the Race #2 of the Retriever. Six yachts participated.

The morning rain encouraged a few competitors to stay indoors, but by race time the weather had cleared and everyone stayed dry. The wind also switched from SE to E, and a good (late) call was made by the Committee vessel to change to an easterly course.
Perhaps the shortest ever first leg (to ‘C’) was compensated by perhaps the widest ever finish line. It was commented on that the finish mark must have drifted, as it was most of the way to Towlers! Anyhow, it was race on, and with Bangalla getting a nice lift she was the first get around the ‘C’ mark. She led to Tp, then put up spinnaker but it was only just holding in the light conditions. Wimmera, helmed by Glenn Barnes, made the move of the race by heading further south, caught some breeze, and got to Rp with the lead. She never relented and held on to win on scratch, despite some concerns on the penultimate leg when Bangalla found some breeze off Longnose Point. Laura, helmed by Jonathon Knox, continued her renaissance. It must have been my jibe about being the ‘slowboat’. She won handicap by a very tight 4 seconds of corrected time. Bangalla was second on handicap, with Wimmera in third position.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 7-13kt with gusts of 9-19kt mainly from the E to ENE. It was similar on Pittwater, but not quite as gusty.
We raced the 7.7Nm E course #17 – C, Tp, Rp, T, C, Tp, Rp, Tp, Rp, T, C.
