There was a fantastic turnout of 10 boats for the first Winter Ladies race of 2013. A leisurely start saw Cut Lunch getting the ‘best start’ prize, even with 24 seconds in the bank after the gun.
A spinnaker start made sure crews were on their toes, especially as the breeze tightened around Okiato point, making it hard work to hold kites all the way to Brampton Buoy.
After Brampton it was a beat to Caters Buoy, followed by another short spinnaker run down to the Southern Channel Markers.
Rounding the corner we made for home, with Crash Cart taking easy line honours, followed by Kantime and the E5.9s.
The win on handicap went to Overdraft, with Cats Paw second and Cut Lunch third. Thanks to our sponsors Makana Confections for the yummy choccy prizes, and to our OOD David for the awesome course.
