Even in the lightening conditions, most boats still managed to finish the race, thanks to the new shorter courses. Thanks to Mona and Paul our starters, and to Ashby’s Boatyard our sponsor. Frivolous Fish picked up the sought-after lucky lift out draw.
A Division had Orange Peeler 1st, with My Size 2nd and Mr Wolf 3rd. Cadillac having the best start.
B Division had Jagged Edge 1st, Cut Lunch 2nd and welcome back to the Whangarei team Elliott Gobble-it 3rd.
C Division had Cats Paw 1st just seconds ahead of both Saltshaker in 2nd and Casco in 3rd, with Sala and Gambler not quite making it when the breeze finally dropped.
Yellow ODM Buoy
Remember: the Yellow ODM Buoy – it’s there for a reason – keep to the Clubhouse side when racing. You are not allowed to go between this buoy and the moorings after starting. If your course goes past it – and you haven’t had time to read the sailing instructions posted on the Club website – treat it as a fairway mark to be on the safe side.
