Hopefully not a sign of the season to come with the fleet splitting into two. Half the fleet decided that the course setter was an idiot and sailed their own course. Or maybe they are trying to pad their handicap. However, in the obedient group it was a tight tussle until Footprint decided he had had enough and simply sailed away for the win. ON Handicap it was Family Affair who signaled that he was going to be a boat to watch this year.

While we might not be of *‘Facebook generation’, not quite Flintstones either. So the noble intent of this Site Admin is to post the event results and any other news and events that are of interest to our sailors and friends of the club. So see you all at 1300 this Sunday for Race 1, Summer Champs. *Sep 22, 2010 Russell Coutts re 72-foot catamarans: "This will be a competition for the Facebook generation, not the Flintstone generation.” Season 2018-19 – Shakedown #2 Being the first morning after daylight saving kicked in (and, I suspect, the morning of a certain Rugby test match), a slightly smaller smaller fleet of 7 boats fronted. A bit of a delay until the breeze kicked in and then the light breeze splitting the fleet by the main channel to Mangroves. This turned out to be a rare race where scratch and handicap results were identical with Sarnia waiting until the last couple of hundred metres to take a 3 second win.

The club welcomed a new sailor (who had obviously done it before) sailing a borrowed Boat (Asahi). Day 1 was a brisk wind giving some exciting moments for all. The scratch results were shared evenly among 3 boats. Days 2 saw a complete change with very light winds. The competition was then done to two with our visitor in Asahi taking the honours. With the new handicaps set for the second half of the season it was Limeburner that prevailed in the handicap stakes. We must acknowledge that Ashia was pushing here also taking out second place. Well done to all the sailors and thanks to the support personnel!

The promised wind chose this day to take a break leading to a shortened race. First day of the season resulted in some administrative glitches hence we are missing the handicap results at time of posting. These will be updated at earliest opportunity.
