Race 9 of the Gulf Harbour Marina & Auckland Engineering Supplies Twilight Series
Published 23:54 on 26 Mar 2021
11 boats started with RO Richard Brown coordinating the evenings entertainment. 10 finished. With a South Easterly 12knt breeze, Course 5 with Starboard roundings had the fleet head out towards the Gulf Harbour Mark. After a clean start those taking the right hand side made most gains. Several kites hoisted for the first downwind leg before another upwind leg with similar outcomes to the first. The reach towards a setting sun camouflaged the orange Mark before an option for a gybe-set manoeuvre before heading downwind towards the finish line. Memphis, First Priority & Glory Days had a good battle downwind drawing in Azure for the last 100m of the course who looked like they were missing out on the action so came across to see what was happening .A stunning evening for completion of this series. Thanks to the 2021 Twilight Series coordinator and handicapper for our entertaining race summary & efficient delivery of results. A great series to be part of.
