Penultimate Short Course completed

by DYC

The penultimate Short Course racing day was held at Docklands last weekend.

A very hot day with very light winds made for challenging conditions for the 3 Liberty and 4 Hansa 303 sailors and race officials.

DYC regulars were joined by James and Greg from Royal Geelong Yacht Club, who will be hosting the Gill Combined Hansa Class Asia Pacific Championships over Easter.

5 races were held across the afternoon despite glassy water and light, shifty winds.

In the Liberty division, remarkably close and technical racing saw each entrant score a first, second, and third apiece, but the stronger winds in the later races saw Docklands locals Russell and Shauna pull away from RGYC visitor James. 

Light winds were no barrier to Christine's dominance of the 303s, winning all 5 races. RGYC's Greg showed great improvement from his last regatta to take second place in all 5 races.
All today's sailors will be competing in the Asia Pacific Championships at Geelong and today's racing was a great practice for the fleet.
The final Short Course event for 2016/17 will be held on Sunday May 21st.
