National Day is just around the corner! Due to the Western Circuit Regatta commencing next week, the fleet participating on Saturday was a wee bit smaller than usual – but no less exciting.
A South Easterly Breeze took sailors on a broad reach down to Squance after the Start. Only realizing she had to start in the opposite direction shortly before the start, Southern Light still managed to produce the best start of the Keelboat fleet – making it back around CSC 1 to cross the line just as the gun went. Despite her brilliant start, the day went to a lighter and more agile boat, as New Blue Eyes comfortably took victory in the PY Class. 2nd and 3rd place was secured by Sapphire Star and Marshmellow respectively.
Invictus returns from a good outing at the RSYC Regatta (2nd Overall) to continue in their winning ways, notching another bullet ahead of fierce rivals, Jong Dee in the IRC Class.
In the Beach Catamaran Class, Uli Braun won comfortably, despite making blunders at the start and finish. At the start, the Nacra 15 thought he was OCS and returned back to the start line for a dip-start (not knowing the individual recall flag was meant for Bad Influence). Half a leg too early to finish, Uli decided to go back to shore – only realizing upon getting closer to the jetty that no S Flag was raised. Despite these silly mistakes, the Nacra 15 still managed to stay ahead of Persian Cat and Bad Influence in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
A match race between Eepai and Baloo in the Cruising Multihull Class sees the latter struggle in yesterdays wind angles – failing to capitalize on a good start, eventually surrendering the lead and the win to Eepai.
Congratulations to all the winners – no racing next weekend due to the Western Circuit Regatta. Looking forward to an awesome day out at the Club on 9th August, National Day, where we host the first-ever CSC Eco-Sailing Day!
