Racing Recap: M-Class “A great day was had by all”

Well firstly I would like to congratulate Marlin, Mach One, Margaret, Menace, Marksman and Motivator for successfully completing the first challenge of the season.  Being ready and fully paid up for the Summer Series not an easy task and certainly left to the last minute by a number of crews, but well done the work clearly paid off as all boats completed the 2 races!

Now the racing…

Race 1 was of course the Femmy won last year by the Flying 15s and despite some amazing efforts of Menace on the start line and Mach One to slow a number of 15s down we failed dismally, and yet again our penalty will be to start behind the 15s for the entire season. Oh well may be next year!

The next race was however the first of the Boat Builders Summer Series points race sailed in a 10-15 knot westerly, with an outgoing tide. The first beat had some close racing until Mach One stretch her legs, leaving the rest of the fleet to fight for the minor positions.

A great day was had by all starting with an AB win, followed by 2 great races and a BBQ to finish. Well done to everyone that made it down and a huge thank you for RAYC.

Next race day is Sunday 8th Nov and it would be great if we could get a couple more boats down.
