Club Racing 24-1-21

Nice Southwest breeze made for some great racing with the fifteen boat fleet.  Do we change rigs to B was the big question and those who made the change ended up being better off .

Neil was top after eight races of close racing

Sorry, no video



2020 Northland IOM Champs



It was a very testing time for the thirty three sailors competing in the North Island IOM Championships at Lake Manuwai during the weekend.

Wind was light and shifty and this was a big challenge to RO Rob Nelson to lay fair race courses. Only ten races were completed; however, the old saying: ‘The cream always rises to the top,’ had Ian Vickers taking yet another regatta win. Not only his new boat from his latest design was first but Reuben Muir and Glen Riley were also second and third and they found the V11 IOM boat extra slippery.

Overall everyone seemed to enjoy the regatta with competitors coming from as far south as Wellington.

Provisional results

Roddy Booth  back after his trip to the South Island again was  King and dominated the racing although Glen Riley was pushing him at times. Great to see a eighteen boat fleet


Club Racing 23-8-20

Northerly breeze created very shifty conditions at the lake on Sunday. The tough guys were rewarded as when the rain came the not so tough went home . Consistency paid for Neil who was top scorer at the end of the day


Club Racing 9-8-20

Perfect days sailing with fourteen boats on the start line with 12-18 knot southwest wind . We all have to sort our starts out as in the videos it does seem a few were over and this will be very costly when sailing in the Northland Champs Neil snuck in to be top of scoreboard at the end of the day
