WRYC Marblehead Match Racing

Photos, Results and Race Report of Waikato Radio Yacht clubs Sunday 26th Feb 2012 Marblehead Match racing Competition.

Sunday 26th February, set down for match racing of our Marblehead fleet, dawned as a sunny very calm day.

The morning program was set aside for fleet racing to get the boats tuned for the afternoon match racing series. This proved a little frustrating as the winds were very light and shifty.  3 new club members were getting familiar with their boats and the conditions, but fun was had by all.

After the lunch break we launched into the match racing with 8 boats taking part.  This was a little disappointing considering the great conditions we had.

The breeze picked up as the afternoon progressed with the Round Robin being completed in just over 1 hour.

Most of the racing was very competitive with Nigel coming out the winner by one point ,  Hats off to the new members who put up a great performance.

A real fun day was had by young and old and congratulations to Nigel for unbeatable sailing.

Looking forward to our next match racing series.  Watch out Nigel!

Fleet racing took place in the morning and we ran the Match racing in the afternoon. Results as follows
