WMRMYC Inc Winter Handicap Series RD 2, Manly Marina - 16th June 2019

SUN 16th JUNE 2019 18Round 2 of our Winter Handicap racing, sailed at Manly got underway in a patchy, light southerly breeze, dropping out at times with an outgoing tide. Testing most skippers throughout the morning.

3 new skippers, David, Bruce & Ian joined us for the morning to test their skills with spare boats supplied by Mike & Ray .All 3 skippers had a few good results and hopefully we will see them again.

Thanks to Andrew Wilson for rigging and tuning these boats and for his support to these new skippers during the day.

Welcome to new skipper, Noel Ives with his V8 Woodie.

Smoko was called after race 4 due to the lack of wind.

Race 5 got underway with the wind still out of the south and the wind did a 180 degree turn during the race, so the course was tuned around for the last 3 races.

Eddie turned up with his new Titan , unfortunitly he had an electrical problem be fore we got underway , so hopefully he will have that issue sorted for next time .

Racing was very close for the day and sailed in good spirit by all .

Many thanks to Ian Foster for taking over OD duties after smoke.
