Photo of the Week – 29 Sept 13

Once again the Grand Final is over and the club faithful braved the chilly water of Port Philip for the annual Ice Breaker.

Although quite a few boats arrived at the club, only a small group of die-hards braved the gusty conditions to try to squeeze in 2 races.  Although the wind looked promising when the boats left the beach, the pressure soon built, with gusts to 25kts by race start…and 27kts as the boats labored through race 1.

One positive was a new PB for the club Commodore, almost cracking the elusive 24kt barrier on his Foiling Moth.  Despite the full race briefing, the bulk of the fleet decided to ignore these instructions and failed to sail a correct course.  Accordingly, pretty much everyone was disqualified.

Moth Speed


Looking forward to some slightly more moderate conditions next week for Aggregate 1!
