Koolong and Blue Water Shield Race #5 Results

On Sunday it was race #5 of the Koolong and the Blue Water Shield. A total of 7 yachts participated.

Wet and windy. It didn’t rain much during the race. That said, we were all soaked by the end. The Blue Water Shield yachts were faced with strong winds and a large swell. To make matters worse, Chill was the first to where the ‘O’ mark is normally located, but there was no sign of the mark. It seemed that an imaginary mark would have to be used. Then on the way to Lion Island, there it was, having drifted west it was hiding largely deflated and mostly below the water. It was not seen again. It turned out to be a long race. Chaos Theory, helmed by Karl Nielsen, stormed home to take line honours. The ever consistent Beau Soleil, helmed by Bob Batchelor, took out first place on handicap. Inside Pittwater for the Koolong it was also pretty rough. Resurgent’s main halyard snapped meaning her mainsail was stuck on the ball, in the raised position. I’m not sure in what condition the sail will be come tomorrow. Bangalla was the first to round the top mark and held on to win scratch and handicap. A special mention to the team on CazBar who put up spinnaker on part of the leg to K. Next time we want to see you gybe it!
In terms of series score, in the Koolong it is tight with Iluka and Bangalla tied on 7 points. In the Blue Water Shield, Beau Soleil is sitting pretty on 6 points.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 18-21kt with gusts of 24-30kt steady from the S. It was similar on Pittwater, maybe a bit stronger.
Koolong raced the 11.3Nm course #9 – Tp, K, Tp, N
Blue Water Shield raced the 13.6Nm course #27 – O, Li, K, Li
