Pittwater Australia Day Regatta Results

On Friday it was the Pittwater Australia Day Regatta race. A total of nineteen yachts participated.

The light breeze provided pleasant if sometimes frustrating sailing. With the wind turning east, a late decision was made to sail course #9. Division 2 (spinnaker) & Division 3 (non-spinnaker) started together and were combined for the results. Revolver helmed by Michael Ritchie shot off and was never again seen by the rest of the fleet (except when going the other way!). She won easily, with the lowest elapsed time for the 2nd year in a row. In second place on scratch was Force 8, helmed by Peter Gale. Rounding out the fleet was Cygnet. She was helmed by her yacht designer Will Hardcastle, who also contributed to the design of the first place yacht, Revolver! At the top of the table for handicap was The Green Boat, an Elliott 7 from RPAYC. She was helmed by the team of Rod Tanks and Katherin Booth. In second place was Free Spirit, an Eastcoast 31 from PBYC, helmed by John Buggy. Norm and Wendy Field will be glad to hear that third place was taken by Young Generation, with David Tallis on the helm. Division 4 (wooden boats) was won on scratch by Antares, helmed by Martin Cross. The handicap winner was Cariad, helmed by ASC’s own James George.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 7-11kt with gusts of 9-14kt mainly from the ENE. It was similar on Pittwater.
