FW Heat 4 – Lake Macquarie!

After a Stella wind forecast, Saturday’s conditions of zero wind and muggy conditions was a bit of a surprise….Luckily racing was called off nice an early so we could concentrate on the potential of a full on days racing on Sunday.
Sunday did not look like disappointing with a 25knot southerly roaring down the bay at 9am.
The game plan for the day was to do 4 back to back races with no break, as the wind was predicted to drop quickly by early afternoon.
So racing kicked off right on time at 11am in what was already a quickly dropping wind, but was still a perfect clean 16knots. 4 races were completed in both the Open and Free Formula divisions with Steve Walsh AUS-55 dominating the open and Andrew Vacopoulos AUS-966 and Niall Kinch AUS-270 fighting it out in the FF.

Thanks to Marmong Point Club and the race crew for managing such as slick days racing. Next stop for the Formula Fleet is Heat 5 and the Down Under Pro www.fw-australia.com

    Great,
    I’ve never sailed there but starting downwind of the course has got to be better. Hopefully there will be no weed. Has anyone asked Baz’s permission to sail on his sacred waters? Forget about welcome to country, we need welcome to Wangi from the hairy elf.
