Race Day 3 of the Moore Wilson’s Winter Series dawned with a light southerly forecast and the promise of some tactical light weather sailing for the day.

Race Officer Ken Burt and his race team for the day decisively located the committee boat in the top of Evans Bay and announced that racing would indeed start on time. A long W/L course was set and the fleet got underway in somewhere between 7-8 knots of northerly, with plenty of chances for hero to zero moves during the race as the breeze eased, swung left and right, and the forecast 10 knots S eventually arriving before almost evaporating before all competitors had finished.

With a full afternoon’s racing, the fleet were back into the warmth of the wardroom for results and prize giving. Seaview Sails & Rigging were the race day sponsor and Dave Molen and Todd Olsen were on hand with a range of Norths Sails t-shirts, duffel bags and bosun’s chairs for those competitors who made the most of the flukey conditions.

Congratulations to Helter Skelter who cleaned up in Div A. The podium in Div B was dominated by CU, Whistler and the Youth Scheme.

A big thank-you to our sponsors for the series, Moore Wilson’s, Bud Nalder Sails, Seaview Sails & Rigging and Chris Coad Photography for their continued support of our racing, please show your support to them in return.
