CLUB INSHORE RACE 11 REPORT - 26 MARCH This race was listed as a W/L to be conducted by the RSAYS. Originally the race was to have some river content to add variety to our Saturday racing, however the amount of expected shipping movements changed that & RSAYS ran an outside start W/L race. The wind varied from 10-17 knts, generally from the SE, but swinging 15° either side. Division 1 & Multihulls: 1.8 miles / 3 laps Division 2: 1.4 miles / 3 laps Division 2 included a couple of J24 competitors, due to the crane breaking down & their race being postponed. It was a Sunny day with 17 on the line for Div 1 start, creating a very competitive start with fleet splitting. The Business and three others tacked early onto port and went out to sea in clear air. The rest went inshore, but big dividends were paid for those who went offshore, with The Business second around the windward mark after SMB. It was close racing with yachts picking the shifts and making big gains. Results At the windward mark rounding for the 2nd time, Two True and 3 Cool Cats hit solidly beam to beam both on D1 IRC D 1 PHS stbd. 3 Cool Cats came off worst with port side fence 1st SMB 3.5 - Geoff Boettcher 1st The Business – Nick George 2nd Two True - Andrew Saies 2nd White Knight – David Knights badly bent. On lap 3 The Business hit the mark. After 3rd The Business – Nick George 3rd SMB 3.5 - Geoff Boettcher all this action and excitement, the results listed Bullistic and Asylum as OCS at the start which was very D2 PHS disappointing for them. 1st Carioca – Beth Hutton 2nd Young Einstein – Rob Sellick It was a great days racing with the RSAYS RO, Langdon 3rd JJF – Doug Watson Hamlyn, doing an excellent job.
