Winter Sailing 01/09 August 2020

Exciting close quarter racing (at times) for the #MMYC Winter Series Race. Sunny light wind conditions strengthened and clouded over for the afternoon, conditions favouring the bigger boats and what looked like from the back of the pack an exciting race to the finish. Awesome work Truxton in first (with bonus chocolate fish points for a buried nose) followed by Not Negotiable, River Rebel and Pork Chop (one second separating 3rd and 4th). Yay for Sunshine! Winning in B division, followed by Déjà vu. Hope the crew on Sophie Rose are feeling rested after a little sleepzzzzz. Great to see lots of boats out there, just two races left as we look forward to Legends Regatta this coming Labour weekend.  This years major sponsor is Pro Marine Electrical.  With a B&G Zeus³ 9 Chart plotter with world base map up for grabs. #fizzing

Last Saturdays 2 up racing saw (some boats) reefed down for squally conditions, some great photos of the carnage on the Yeahthegirls (Rascal Tom) Facebook page.

Thank you to the tiptop crew in the tower, the handicappers and to all the crews (and support crews) that make MMYC racing so much flippin’ fun!

If you have any photos from the race you would like to share, feel free to post them via the Facebook page, always makes for some good sea stories.
