Summer Series – 20th August 2023

Very successful pursuit race with twelve boats taking part.
Unfortunately we lost Rex before the start on the slipway as he got in to trouble and broke his centre board. Three toppers started and were well in front having completed their first lap before some of the faster boats had started. After 22 mins we had the final boat Dart15 with Sam starting.
Slowly the fleet closed up with ten minutes to go the Lasers started to overtake the Toppers. Resulting in a number of changes in the last five minutes and 80% of the fleet finishing within minutes of each other.
First mark was repositioned for the second race and the wind picked up for this race, but we had no capsizes giving the rescue boat an easy time.
Around 1200 we saw the swimmers on their way to Jackson Bay, but they were outside the sailing fleet.
