The Short Course Racing Series continued at Docklands today with 9 boats competing on a beautiful sunny day.  Winds were generally light northerlies, but the strength was up and down and there were some massive wind-shifts to keep things challenging.

 

The Victorian Special Olympics Sailing Team are also using the series to help prepare for their National Regatta being held in Adelaide next month.

 

Racing was tight in the 2.3 division, with Andrew Cook, Cadeyrn Gaskin and Carl Douglas all taking race wins.  Carl was the strongest improver on the day, taking the last race.  Andrew maintains a healthy lead on progressive scores followed by Krista Bailey.  Cadeyrn Gaskin has clawed some points back after sailing the previous round in a 303 to train for the Access Class Nationals.  It was worth it as Cadeyrn and crew Gavin Dagley are now National Champions.

 

The next scheduled heats are on Sunday April 11.
