WMRMYC Inc Summer Handicap Series RD 4, Manly Harbour - 19th February 2017

The Morning kicked off with a small delay when a keen eyed member of the paparazzi spotted local Celebrity and Skipper young Jack Ford, who obliged with a brief interview and a few photos...

...which are rumoured to be run in the next issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine putting Jack in good stead for a very exciting season.

A good turnout saw 13 boats on the water with some competitive skippers behind the Controls and with the Fans gathering it was time to get down to business. With the shifty light winds, incoming tide and regardless of the handicapped starts it was proving be close racing with members like Andrew Milne and Mike Freebairn fighting for the shifts and catching the fleet after heavily handicapped starts. But after a quick course change, a points battle between Peter Kampe and Tony Grey made for some close racing with the end result seeing Jim Morgan taking away first, and with less than a point between them Tony Grey second and Peter Kampe third.
