Junior Sailing - 13th August 2017

posted Aug 27, 2017, 6:55 PM by Admin hycnz


Finally a good day for junior sailing, a bit of wind and a nice fine day. We had six keen junior sailors turn up for racing. Everyone managed to get themselves organised and on the water quickly and efficiently.

Sean set a course right out in front of the club. The first race was three laps of the triangular course. Once everyone figured out where the course actually was (listening at briefing is a skill a couple of sailors are working on!) they all got off to a clean start.

Ollie sailed particularly well and got off to a good lead at the start which he never lost, Kieran and Harrison fought it out for second and third with Kieran getting over Harrison on the last lap and taking second place. Phoebe, Mackenzie and Nixon sailed well to complete the race.

After some minor sail adjustments race two was four laps of the same course. Ollie, Kieran and Harrison were again fighting it out for the top three spots, some close exciting racing was great to watch from the shore. In the end Harrison took the line honours with Kieran and Ollie second and third. Mackenzie was overtaken by Phoebe on the last lap with Nixon finishing the fleet.

It was a great day for learning about racing with some close racing making it an exciting day for all. Many thanks to Sean Munro for organising, Denise, Greg and Garry for helping out and Cameron and Stuart for safety boat duties.

The day finished with Phoebe and Mackenzie going out with Greg for a bit of sail which they really enjoyed.
