Retriever Race #5 Results

On Sunday it was race #5 of the Retriever. A total of 5 yachts participated.

For the third race in row we were faced with a strong southerly. In memory of life member Wendy Field, who sadly passed away last week, the yachts in the race flew a ribbon from their backstays. Norm and family are in our thoughts at this time. Resurgent, with Rick Hall back behind the tiller, was the first to round the top-mark. CazBar (better known as BarReef after her crew saw the barnacles on the keel) was close behind at the top-mark. Both flew kite and took the right side on the first downwind leg. However, it was Bangalla sticking to the left and without spinnaker which was the first to round Sp. Resurgent rounding just behind Bangalla then pushed Bangalla into the lulls of The Basin, tacked away and was never again headed. Goldfinger, helmed by Jan Evans, continued her consistent form, working well to windward and enjoying the solid breeze downwind. Resurgent won on scratch and handicap.

In terms of series score after 5 races, Goldfinger leads on 9 points, with Bangalla in second spot on 11 points and then Wimmera on 12 points is also still a chance.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 21-25kt with gusts of 27-32kt steady from the S. It was similar on Pittwater, maybe a bit lighter and more from the SSE.
