Day four of the Moore Wilson’s Winter Series proved to be one out of the box. Thirty yachts with over 200 sailors onboard gathered on the start line for what proved to be the best day’s racing yet in the 2012 series.
Race Officer Ken Burt set up the start line to north of Point Jerningham and laid a trinagle windward-leeward course for the first time in the series. Racing got underway in around ten knots which garadually built as the day went on and ended up in the late teens. A tight second reach added to the challenge for all and led to few tall tales about passing manoeuvres in the wardroom after sailing.
