Lead Changes and Light Breeze


Feb 16, 2020

Day one of the 2020 International Ten Rater Australian Championship saw multiple lead changes in the light and shifty breeze at Yarrawonga.

Arriving at the Yarrawonga Yacht Club the fleet faced a NNE breeze blowing around 5-10 knots with gusts of a little more which saw some decision making as far as rig choice but after the first seeding races the A rig was adopted by all.

Scott Condie (NSW) & Simon Ellis (WA) got off to a good start with a win in their respective seeding races but after race but after race two Andrew Reid (VIC) had nudged ahead with a 2,1 but with the weed making a presence the lead was short lived adding a couple of 12th's to his score card. 

Steve Sedgmen (NSW) was next in line to claim the lead after race 4 only for Condie to take the lead once more after race 5. 

\20200216_10R_2The breeze continued to weaken and oscillate through NNW/NNE creating challenges for the race committee and after some short delays with course resetting the racing continued.

Race 6 saw Kirwan Robb grab his first race win and he continued his form in the lights airs winning races 7 & 8 and has taken the overnight lead at the end of day one.

Racing continues tomorrow.
