16 Dec 2014

The NorEaster took its time coming but was solid 15 to 20 during our race period 

The story of the day was Tait and Kyle - they had their boat dialled in and took 16 line honours in all 3 races. Andrew and Helen attacked hard in every race but the boys were just firing .  It took so much out of Andrew that he needed a Nanna Nap when he got home!

The rest of the fleet went round in very quick time and it is really great to see everyone getting faster and more confident in the big chop and wind that our NorEaster provides. I felt that everyone was racing rather than surviving.

D and Jordon get the prize for stack of the day . They were  50m from the finish pushing hard to stay in front of Tait when they trip the bows and cartwheeled

Thanks to Uncle Mick & MB for race duty and Bec for  the BBQ  

9 Nov 2014

With a 10-12 knot South Easter, 10 boats started a four race day. The morning proved light and fluky winds with MB & Bonnie excelling in these conditions.
Peter & Bailey sailed fast and confirmed it’s not a good idea to rush when rigging up – there was a bit of re-rigging happening on the water.
Tait & Kyle dragged an anchor around in the morning but were able to come out of Race 3 with broad shoulders, making good decisions and finishing first over the line in the Hobie 16s.
Scott and Chloe showed signs of hot boat speed upwind and Chloe was looking good on the wire.
Kerry, Brian, Di & Jordan decided the start line was too short so took the pin mark for a ride. 
Egbert changed his crew a few times throughout the day with Blake proving to be an excellent new crew member on the wrong type of boat.
Nick & Clair are showing the fleet they’re the ones to be watching out for, they sailed well and are improving every week.
Will and Patrick blitzed it in Race 4 – as the saying goes, you’re only as good as your last race!
A huge thank you to Angela & Jase for their beautiful salads & BBQ. – they’re welcome anytime.
Overall, a good day had by all.

Todays results and the final series results are on the results page. Well done to Tait and Kyle for taking out the Spring Pointscore!
