This week around 6 catamarns came down to a southerly breeze with base breeze 10 to 17 knots with gusts 17 to 25 knots. And a cool 19 degrees celcius. Ralf Steyer, Hugh Lewis, Jocab Abeleven, Tony Sanderson, Tony Zahra, Ross Fyfe
After the precious week there was a lot of discussion before any sign of rigging. Final consensus was
Duty crew Richard Lech was ably supported by last minute inclusion of Chris Malcolm (his catamaran out of action for a while for repairs and a new main sail). I lent him a spray jacket as the windy conditions were quite fresh. As it turned out he ended up jumping in on a rescue and sailing Richard Hipsleys boat back to shore (rudder issues) before any racing started . Spending the rest of the sailing session wet and pretty chilli in the stiff breeze and would have been even cooler without the jacket. A port course was set start out front of club, top mark in the middle and wing mark near the reef.
