Retriever Race #3 Results

On Sunday is was the Race #3 of the Retriever. A total of twelve yachts participated. We welcomed the Couta Boats, which raced in Division 3.

Before the start, the big question was what would the wind do during the afternoon. Some forecasters had it swinging from north to south. The race committee went with a course that could handle either! The wind near the start line was from the NE so boat end seemed favoured, but half way up Pittwater it swung to the north. Some boats looked for lifts off the western shore, but it seemed that the better pressure was on the right. Throughout the afternoon the Etchells slowly picked off the Couta fleet, but on a broad reach the Coutas were pretty much at the same (if not faster!) pace. In Division 3, the winner on scratch was Southerly, helmed by Terry Moran. The handicap winner was Cariad, helmed by James George. In Division 1, scratch was taken out Wimmera, helmed by Glenn Barnes. Goldfinger, helmed by Jan Evans, took out another handicap victory, winning by a large margin on corrected time. Laura, helmed by Gavin Stidwell, came in second place.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 7-17kt with gusts of 9-20kt from ENE turning NE. It was similar on Pittwater with the wind NNE in the northern half of the course and NE in the southern section.
We raced the 11.4Nm N course #3 – N, Tp, N, Lp, Sp
