Avalon Series Race #6 Results

On Sunday it was race #6 of the Avalon Series. A total of 12 yachts participated.
Firstly a reminder that the next race in the Avalon Series on 8 April is the early handicap start with first signal at 9:55am. Make sure you stay around for the Club Picnic which will follow the race.

It was close – between 1st and 3rd, then 4th and 8th, and then 9th and 12th . The steady fresh nor’easter kept the fleet on the move, but made it hard for the back markers to catch the early starters. With a good breeze on the western shoreline, Laura helmed by David Boyd had a tough tussle but managed to hold off High Jinks and Goldfinger. Element, helmed by Rob Slack, worked her way through the fleet overtaking eight yachts to take out 4th place. Kama III, with Deb Wellwood on the helm, did everything she could to move up the rankings, even raising her colourful spinnaker for the last 300m. She came in 5th. At the back of the field were the two Etchells.
The race was handicapped for a 160 minute ‘slowboat’. It was a bit faster, with a mid-fleet time of 146 minutes. That said, corrected time results were pretty similar.
In terms of series score after 6 races (with two drops assuming one more race is completed) leading is Goldfinger on 5 points, followed by Laura on 6 points. Liberty is in 3rd spot.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze of around 14kt from the NE. It was similar on Pittwater.
