Koolong and Blue Water Shield Race #4 Results

Last Sunday it was race #4 of the Koolong and the Blue Water Shield. A total of nine yachts participated.

It was a perfect day for sailing in the steady east-nor’easter. Those in the Koolong were kept busy with spinnaker work on the four downwind legs. Generally the left side paid on the way upwind with lifts off the shoreline. Resurgent got off to a good start, but Bangalla took her opportunity when on the first downwind leg Resurgent headed to Rp instead of T. Bangalla extended that lead to take out 1st place on scratch. High Jinks, with Barry Black back behind the tiller, took out the win on handicap. In the BWS, it was very tight with only two minutes of corrected time separating the top four yachts. Despite not flying her kite, Diablo, helmed by Jean Cross, did the best and she took out 1st place on handicap. First place on scratch was Element, helmed by Rob Slack.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 13-15kt with gusts of 15-18kt mainly from the ENE. It was similar on Pittwater and Broken Bay.

The Koolong raced the 11.9Nm ENE course #6 – S, T, S, Rp, C, Rp, C, Rp, C
The Blue Water Shield raced the 13.1 Nm NE course #26 – O, Li, K, O
