RPNYC welcomes back twilight racing

0

In January, the Twilight Series took place on Wednesdays. This was a good way to get back into racing and also to eye up the competitor’s skills before the Regatta.
We had 9 boats in total competing in this series and received great feedback.

The first evening comprised of 4 W/L races of about 10 minutes each, controlled from Caniwi in the inner harbour. It was decided there would be no kites allowed in the boisterous 20 -30 knots conditions.

Race day 2 was a club start with the finish at Jerningham, then 2 W/L races starting from Jerningham in more settled conditions.

Race day 3 was cancelled due to being too windy.
We needed to issue an NTC to allow for more races in the series than planned pre-season, which is a nice situation to be in.

On the final race day the race management team managed to get another 2 races away to make it a 9-race series.

We’d like to give huge thanks to the RM volunteers and the skippers and crews who made this series a great success.

Thanks all and see you soon out on the water.
