NBSailsports Sprint Series Woollahra Race

DiSissinghThanks to Peter Heywood for the following report on the day.

A huge NBLaser regatta with the forecast wind arriving with readings over 32 knots calling a halt to the days racing in the second race of the day. It was a chilly day and with prospect of a building wind the course was contained from Rose Bay to Point Piper with a sandy downwind beach.

The first race finished successfully with a starts at around 10:00 for the Radials/4.7 and Standards in a building wind of around 15-20 knots. The westerly wind was swinging 10-20 degrees in the gusts making upwind a challenge.

The second race was abandoned when 30+ knots arrived. The sailors got a white knuckle ride back to the Club with the 1 metre wind waves and the strong westerly gusts.

A great day with many stories après velo at the Woollahra Club Café.
