32 skippers registered for the event and, pleasingly, all 32 showed up on the day.

Fortunately, the predicted maximum temperature of 35 for Saturday did not eventuate. The predicted south easterly change kicked in early, and after only a few seeding races in a north westerly, the remainder of the 2 days was spent sailing in a sometimes quite brisk south-easterly. Ideal for the Eagleby venue, as the course could be set across the face of the control area.

Racing, under the control of PRO Iain Kirley, got underway on time on Saturday, and at first it didn’t look all that promising, with a light and shifty north westerly and cloudy skies. It then swung around to a light South easterly and for a while the wind didn’t get much better. But by around 11:00 am it had picked up to the predicted 15-25 kph. The wind made it difficult for our resident chef, David Cox, to keep sufficient heat in his BBQ, and lunch was delayed an hour. Oh, and it rained/drizzled on an off for most of the afternoon with the roll of distant thunder thrown in for good measure.

The field was divided into three fleets on Saturday, however it was decided that Sunday would be run with just two fleets. Both options come with their pros and cons, however with the big fleets and strong winds, the windward mark is a very busy place for skippers and observers alike.

The strong conditions, which even saw the emergence of a few “C” rigs on Sunday, made for spirited racing, and ultimately several withdrawals. The vast majority of penalties were settled on the water, and only one protest for redress was heard, (and upheld).

Congratulations to Garth Halton, Lindsay Walker, and Allan Walker.
