Summer 17/18

WMRMYC Inc Handicap Summer Series Round 6, Manly - 15th April 2018

16apr18Last of the Summer Sorties

The wind blew in from nor-nor east, Nine boats circled slow

Each one counting down the clock, for their allotted time to go

Off they went in the lights wind, all plying their skippers craft

Some more able as the wind then varied from bluster to a draft

 Ebbing was the tide, and thankfully weed was lost at sea

Toad fish, small bream and a seed pod were all for us to see

Dennis was menaced by gremlins, somewhere in his boat

Scott, the PRO was generally happy with all of those afloat

Back and forth, the markers moved around the board

The wind gradually steadied and boat speed slowly soared

After ten eventful sorties upon the falling tide

The results were in for all of those who tried.




WMRMYC Inc Scratch Summer Series Round 6, Manly - 8th April 2018

SUN 8th APRIL 2018 223ROUND 6 OF THE SCRATCH SUMMER SERIES kicked off with a light Southerly, Peter wisely kept the yachts ashore until the expected Sou Easter came through.

Racing got away just before 10 with a mix of south and Sou east on the course making it hard for all to race fairly, luckily Hughie decided to lock in the Sou Easter. Wind was still shifty and light all the way up until drinks were called and the results were a mix bag. The 2nd half to the day was a lot more consistent and results showed. Special mention must go to Peter for trying water ballast in his new Yacht and as the results showed I think he will remove the ballast for the next round of racing. Another mention also must go to Russel, Tony and John G for keeping all the on lockers entertained with plenty of argy bargy. All skippers must be thanked for a well sailed day with minimal infringements. Also a big thanks to John, Bruce, Peter and Scott for all the work you guys put in to get us sailing each week.
