On a day where the regular Short Course Series was abandoned due to the forecast poor weather, a trio of keen Impulse sailors could not resist the opportunity to sail on Docklands. 

 

Breezes were approaching the upper limit, but Terry, David & Morgan obliged by setting a course and running three short races in the brisk but surprisingly dry conditions.  This was the first sail for Perin Hardie's new boat and he was happy to bring it across the line for three straight wins.

 

The Impulse class are planning to be back on Victoria Harbour in January.
