Frosty Morning at RAYC

Today was supposed to be another installment of the RAYC Winter Series, with both the Flying 15s and the Feva sailors amping to get out on the water. However the high-pressure weather system that has spread itself over New Zealand meant a frosty morning and a distinct lack of wind which ultimately led to the cancellation of today’s racing.

The Feva sailors delighted this morning in playing with the ice that had formed on the covers of the boats stored outside RAYC. The ice that had formed was nearly half a centimeter thick, and though cold on the fingers, provided some entertainment for the young sailors.

The cancellation of racing meant the Fevas decided to practice their light-air techniques in Okahu Bay. Skippers Eli Liefting and Harry Butler were introduced to some match racing tactics by coach Nathan. This led to a long debrief on the rules and tactics after the training session was finished.

Fingers crossed for a better breeze for the next Winter Series in two weeks time!
