Crew's Race Results

On Sunday is was the Crew’s Race. A total of seven yachts participated.

Well, what a race. In the 40 degrees of heat, and with sons and daughters and even a Tahitian backpacker on the helm anything was possible! It is called the Crew’s Race, but it should have been known as the Navigator’s race. Finding your away around the holes on Pittwater and sailing in breeze was what made the difference. Often boats less than 20m apart were sailing in a different breeze. Overall, it was a pretty good and contested start for a Crew’s Race. It remained close upfront until the second ‘S’ rounding when Chaos Theory, helmed by Brett Stapleton, sneaked through on the right shoreline picking up a strong breeze out of Careel Bay. Meanwhile, other yachts watched on whilst stationary. By the last time around ‘S’, Chaos Theory had a big lead of around 1.0 nm. She too, however, found a huge hole on the way back to the finish line. Just Magic II, helmed by Jodi Moore, took the wide right route, found some pressure, and nearly caught up to Chaos Theory, with less than a boat length separating the yachts at the finish. Handicap honours in the Crew’s Race also went to Brett Stapleton as the helm of Chaos Theory. Well done, especially as Brett decided to sweat out a 3-day flu!

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 6-19kt with gusts of 9-21kt starting N turning E then back to NNE. It was lighter and patchy on Pittwater, with the wind mainly from the NE.
We raced the 7.8Nm NE course #16 – S, C, Rp, S, Lp, S
