Koolong and Blue Water Shield Race #3 Results

 On Sunday is was the Race #3 of the Koolong and the Blue Water Shield. A total of eleven yachts participated.

A wide start line provided much choice although the boat end was most popular and the correct choice. Wimmera, helmed by Glenn Barnes, got a great start and sailed an immaculate race despite being only two-up. At one stage she was so lifted on both tacks that off Longnose Point she seemed to sail straight into the breeze. She never looked back and won on scratch by nearly three minutes. Resurgent was in second place. On handicap the result was very close, with less than 4 minutes of corrected time separating the fleet. Putting in another strong performance to take handicap honours was Iluka, helmed by Di Mattes. She now is well placed in the series with two wins and a duty.

In the Blue Water Shield, Element helmed by Rob Slack did her usual and won on scratch. That said, the winning margin wasn’t as extreme as usual. Beau Soleil handled the conditions best to win on handicap by just over two minutes of corrected time. Well done to Bob and crew.


Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 14-18kt with gusts of 17-22kt from ENE turning NE. It was similar on Pittwater and Broken Bay.
