Winter All-Class Handicap Day 3 Results
Sunday 15 October. All Skippers were prepared to cancel Sunday’s event. It rained solid for most of the morning, but started to clear at about 10.30 ish. By midday it turned out a real summers day, and a mad panic to prepare for the sailing.
The event was Day 3 of the Winter Series All Class Handicap. 3 skippers arrived at Aotea in time to start sailing at the appointed time (1.30 PM) Les and John arrived much later on. It was very surprising that no boat got caught up in weed, which happens on a regular basis at this venue. But the wind was a real problem. The wind was clocked at 00 km/h and the gusts where also clocked at 00 km/h. so we had a very trying afternoon sailing. It was great to see an AC15 taking part in the handicap. Over all a very ‘testing’ afternoon sailing.
