Flying downwind: Sussex Inlet RSL was fourth across the line in Sussex Inlet & Basin Yacht Club’s second Outside Course race of the season.There was a major improvement in the weather for the second Outside Course of the season with dry and warm conditions. The wind was a little taxing with both direction and strength variable, with some parts of the course with no wind at all.
It was a handicap start so the first boats over the starting line were Tingaround (Andrew, John and Garry) and HooRoo (Andy and Lou and guest crew Dave) followed shortly after by Backchat (Steve and Mark). Next off was Gone Too Farr (Greg and Rhonda and crew) with Sussex Inlet RSL (Glen and Ken), Pass The Port (Paul, Lynne, Graham and Leroy) and Southern Cross (Greg, Lynne, Rhonda and Bill) bringing up the rear.
The challenging wind conditions made for some very interesting racing and some decisions that initially appeared to be radical turning out to work very well (Gone Too Farr and Tingaround!).
PBH results:1st Southern Cross, 2nd Gone Too Farr, 3rd Pass The Port, 4th Sussex Inlet RSL, 5th Backchat, 6th Tingaround, 7th HooRoo
