2015 / 2016 Boatspray Gold Cup

Race 3 Results & Photos

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations to everyone who raced on Saturday for Race 3 of the Boatspray Gold Cup Series!

I was lucky enough to have raced on Saturday as well and was on board the ORMA60 Trimaran, Team Vodafone Sailing. With a bit of breeze, TVS just takes off, and I have to congratulate Simon Hull and his crew on how they handle themselves during the pre-start.

Being on board I was able to witness first hand how difficult it is to manoeuvre TVS in the restricted starting area. As such, I would like to draw everyone's attention to the following Sailing Instruction Clause:

11. THE START
11.1 Boats whose warning signal has not been made shall avoid the starting area. 

Please be respectful of the Multihull fleet and stay well clear of their starting area.  Thank you all in advance for acknowledging this request. Last thing we want to see is a collision of any kind.

SAFETY CHECKS

Vice Commodore and Chair of the RAYC Sailing Committee Sally Garrett, conducted random life jacket safety checks on 15 boats before the start.  

Some boats in the fleet were carrying or wearing buoyancy aids, which is great, but please be reminded for YNZ Cat 4 all life jackets (safety regs 17.05) must be NZS 5823:2005 or type 402. This means they must have a collar. Click here to learn more.

So you need to make sure that if you are wearing a dinghy style buoyancy aid, that you also have a collared life jacket on board as well.

RESULTS

The results have been processed and are now available.

Like always, please check and let me know if there are any obvious errors!

Thanks also to Brad Davies from LiveSailDie.com for capturing photos of the start in my absence.  All the photos he took can be found here.

The next race is just two weeks away! The Bucklands Beach Yacht Club's Percy Jones Memorial Trophy on Saturday 14th November.

See you on the water!

Cheers,
