Winter Series Race 5 - 2018

On a shocking day 7 boats braved torrential rain for the sake of a sail. Footprint showed the rocket she is in light winds to lead from start to finish. Need I say that it was Limeburner with the handicap honours. A learning moment was taken by Kitiri on the finer points of the port-starboard rule and the requirement for the 720 penalty turn!

Winter Series Race 2 - 2018

Race two of the Winter series had another good turnout of eleven boats in a nice breeze. Shadze took the novel approach of being on the start line on the gun. He nearly held out to take the gun but was pipped by Matitai for the win. A close race with seconds seperating the first 5 finishers! Family Affair took the honours in the handicap stakes.

Winter Series Race 1 - 2018

Race one of the Winter series started with a good turnout of eleven boats and it was a bit wintery. But not too wintery for Sarnia to go for a swim. Didn’t even bother capsizing! Orca lead for most of the race but unfortunately miscalculated the water depth and parked while Matitai sailed by to take the race. Limeburner took the honours in the handicap stakes.
