Bay of Many Coves race turns into a drifter

{jcomments off}The last offshore race of the season was a real challenge – not because of high winds, but because of a lack of them.

There were five boats in the race: The Guarantee, Gucci, Wai-Aniwa, Am Meer, and Illusions. Some of the big girls and boys were either still out of town from the RNI or couldn’t get enough crew.

Island Bay race a ripper

The Island Bay race was a ripper with a “gentle” southerly that dropped from 25 to around 8 knots over the day providing tight reaching conditions along the south coast and a great kite run to Number 11 at Korokoro. Swells up to three metres at the entrance combined with an in-coming ferry and out-going tanker just added a little spice to what proved an excellent day for the fleet.

The Race started at 0800 hours in a light southerly with a heavy overcast sky. With 13 starters (and finishers), the race was one of the best of the season so far.
