2018 Joe Manifold Cup

2018 Joe Manifold Cup

With the promise of a lively breeze, a good turn of 11 boats was achieved. The race conditions were great with fairly constant pressure. Team Effort reminded us why he is on a scratch handicap, leaving all in his wake to take the gun. Incognito took the honours on corrected times.

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.

Raring to get back into it we started the season with a nice sized fleet of 8 Frostbites and 1 sunburst (single handed). 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.

A new season is upon us and with that a new approach to the Taikata Sailing Club online presence with this new web site News page. 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.
