Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter Race 1
Published 21:48 on 14 Jun 2020
Race 1 of the Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter GHYC-WBC Combined Series 2020 kicked off today.
Easterly breeze blew away the grizzly skies of the morning for a blue sky start at 13:00 with the GHYC Olympus team led by Richard Brown. Both fleets set off with clean starts.
Sarah and Ted whizzed around on Chase to set up the Olympic style course with port roundings of a triangle, followed by Windward-Leeward and final upwind to finish.
Some crews appeared a shade rusty after a few months on terra firma with at least a tricolour of wine glasses across the racecourse.
Line Honours: Big Kahoona
White Fleet: 11 boats
1st Glory Days, 2nd Azure, 3rd Big Kahoona
Gold Fleet: 7 boats
1st Blazin White, 2nd Stark Raven, 3rd C McGuire
Big thanks to the organisation that goes on behind the scenes to get this series back up & running !
