Retriever Race #4 and Couta Boat Race #2 Results

At ASC last Sunday we raced race #4 of Retriever and race #2 of the Couta Boats. A total of 10 yachts participated.
It was good to have the Couta Boats sailing with us again. They headed off 11 minutes before the remainder of the fleet, helping the yachts behind them to identify the best side to reach the first mark. In the end, however, the breeze died at Tp, and the yachts struggled to even turn around the mark when they eventually got there! The wind remained light most of the way on the next leg to Sp. Resurgent was the first to pick up the southerly breeze and she nearly caught the early front runner Wimmera. The Couta Boats also seemed to spend a long time getting to Sp, waiting for the breeze to reach them. From then on the breeze held and it was a nice day on the water. On the way back up to Tp, Wimmera, helmed by Glenn Barnes, clung to the western shore line and found good breeze and a nice lift as she came past Longnose Point. She held on to that lead for the rest of the race to take out both scratch and handicap. Bangalla took out 2nd place in both. The Coutas had a very close race, with less than 2 minutes separating the fleet. Cariad, helmed by James George, took out scratch. The winner on handicap, by only 9 seconds of corrected time, was Kathleen Mary, helmed by Kelly Holder.

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 10-12kt with gusts of 14-17kt steady from the SE. It was similar on Pittwater (other than near to no wind at the 1st mark!).
We raced the 11.7Nm S course #10 – Tp, Sp, Tp, Sp, Tp, Sp
This Sunday is the Avalon Series [note that the abandoned race from last month will not be rerun, so it will now be a 7 race series]. Hope to see lots of yachts out there!
