Pittwater Regatta Day 2

by

Wow what a weekend, after our run of bad weather we managed two fantasic days of sailing.

Sundays fleet was swelled to 11 NS14's 9 B14's and 5 Sabres getting underway from 12:00 in a warm Northerly of  10 to 16 knots and gusts from 15 to 22 knots.

The course was lengthened from Saturdays and the fleet spread out more but the freshening breeze tested the crews who late in the day were feeling it as the 8th race aproached.

Again close racing was a feature of the regatta with many boats only seperated by a few seconds in every race.

The Sabres saw Lauren Keil in Times Up taking a clean sweep with eight wins second was Mick Emery in Wetas and  Michael Verrier third in LMG.

The NS14's were taken out by Fast Asleep Katherine & Matthew Davis with four wins two seconds and a third after the drop, second was Arctic Greg Rowsell and Eli Cameron with two firsts three seconds a third and a fourth and third was Spinifex Peter & Karen Davis with two seconds a third a forth and three sixths. Split on a countback from Pumpkin Eater Darren & Josh Eggins and Norwegian Blue Scott & Aiden Wilkie all three boats on 29 points.

 

In the B14's Abandoned Boat Adrian Beswick and Jono LeBis in their first race in the new boat had a great regatta winning all four races today to finish with six firsts and a third second was The Hitcher Robbie Hunt and David McAuly with two wins four seconds and a third and in third spot Smokin Col Dabner and Clare Cromarty who finished with three seconds two thirds and two fourths.

Thanks to Chris Keil and his crew for running a great regatta and lets make it bigger and better next year.

As more photos come to hand I will add them to the apropriate days entry.
