After a cloudy start to the day, the seabreeze gradually filled in to about 12-15 knots. Those who were able to stick around were able to sail in two planing races around 5:30pm, with people on sails between 7.5 and 9.0. A third race was started but abandoned as the wind was starting to die as the sun went down.
Thanks to all 21 sailors who came along, including Rick Turner who came all the way from Jervis Bay for the day! Also good to see a few new racers from Sydney and the Central Coast. Hope to see you all back up in Lake Macquarie again soon.
Thanks also to John, John and Greg who put in lots of work on the boat and to Byron, Murray and Brett for their help with all of the event planning.
Results are shown below. Congratulations to Byron and Remi for their dead heat 1st place, and to Tibor in 3rd place.
Next round of slalom is over the weekend of 15th/16th December at Kyeemagh, Botany Bay. And the next round of Formula is back at Lake Macquarie next weekend. Location and more details will be posted up during the week.
