Pittwater Regatta Day 1


A fleet of 10 NS14's 7 B14,s and 4 Sabres took to the water with the promise of more boats tomorrow.

After a dull gray start with a cool southerly the weather picked up to a near perfect day with bright sun and a reasonably steady SSE breeze of between 8 and 14 knots with gusts to 18 on occasions.

The racing was over a very short course ensuring lots of tight action and close finishes keeping the start finish crew on their toes with lots of 1 or 2 second margins.

The racing was great to watch with spectators on several vantage points.

Lauren Keil has a strong hold on the Sabre title with four bullets for a perfect score.

In the NS14's there is a great battle with Fast Asleep with a clear lead taking 3 bullets and a second clear of Arctic then Spinifex a point ahead of three boats tied for forth in Norwegian Blue, Pumpkin Eater and Sea Breeze.

A tight battle in the B14's with The Hitcher two points clear of Abandoned Ship with a gap over Phantom a point ahead of Smokin.

Another four races are scheduled for tomorrow starting from 12:00.

See under the photos for all results.
