Friday 19 October :   20 races


Thursday 18 October  :   16 races
Thursday morning saw the best wind direction in the regatta so far, allowing a start to leeward with a long beat and the finish further to windward and a steady No 1 suit breeze for the first race. The wind strength quickly rose to 15 – 25 km/hr at rig height and then again to 20 – 30 km/hr putting all but the bravest into No 3 suit. This made for the fastest and most spectacular sailing so far but the occasional gusts and lulls provided many opportunities for gain or loss.

Wednesday 17 October - Lay day


Tuesday 16 October : 12 races
Wind from North easterly direction, but with shifts; 8 - 12 knots speed. Skippers remain generally courteous. There were a few protests yesterday which led to delays but both race committee and skippers seem to be getting into a groove.
The Race committee has initiated a ‘Black Flag’ rule after two general recalls to keep skippers behind the line. Twenty boats on the line with opportunity for six to move up seems to make some skippers over zealous.
It is sunny and warm at 23-25°
Good racing. More to come.
