13th January 2018 Susan Island Challenge

Susan Island: 1   CRSC: 0
Almost zero breeze and a strong outgoing tide put an end to this year's Susan Island Challenge with no one able to complete the full distance.  After well over an hour's 'sailing' and barely 25% of the course completed, officials had no option but to hoist the S flag and send everyone home.  Luckily the tide was still running out and skippers were at least able to avoid the indignity of being towed.

Nevertheless racing was still official and congratulations to Neil and Micaela Burgess for taking out yardstick honours.  Neil and Micaela did extremely well to coax their heavy weight Corsair along in such a miniscule breeze.    Finishing less than a minute behind was the Club's newest member Gus Young.   Despite a slow start Gus was able to work his Laser through the fleet by taking full advantage of every puff of air that came along.   A great effort and Gus will be a strong contender in this division. 

Other news is we've got two new boats in the Club.    Brian Wright has just purchased a very nice A Class catamaran and will definitely be the one to beat on line honours when the breeze is in.    James Harrison has also upgraded - to a Nacra 16.    A  fast boat, it performed amazingly well in today's drifter and will be one to watch when conditions are more favourable.

Next week's racing (20th Jan) will be a normal Club Pointscore.
