2019 AUS Ten Rater Championship Day 2


Feb 7, 2019

The breeze that took till lunch time to come in on day 1 was there before briefing today. Courses were set and it was on.

\images\Day1_1Ten knots from the ESE gusting to a little more sometimes that was only interrupted by a squall late in the morning. It came through as a B fleet race was starting causing havoc on the line. After that passed there was the usual lull for a race or two before settling back in for the day.

Kirwan Robb continued the domination for the second day. His worst result was 4th, three of them, but they have now all been dropped. Andrew Reid is his closest competition but is 18 points in arrears and it is difficult to see how he can bridge that gap with the single day left to race. But Scott Condie is just 9 points from Reid so the silver medal is still up for grabs.

Novelty of the day was the B fleet competitor who was very late for the start due to equipment issues. With seconds remaining he launched the boat off the bank and streeted the fleet with his port start. Not recommend but it worked just this once.

The cloud cover reduced visibility after 4:00 p.m. and the top marks became harder to range find. As the last race was called Andrew Reid discovered his boat electronics unresponsive. As he worked to remedy the problem the start he missed ended in a general recall. That's what are mates for apparently! He made the re-start with less than a minute to spare.

The forecast for tomorrow looks similar, another champagne day at Regatta Lake.
