GBYC club heat 1

Saturday 29th saw the first heat sailed'
the fleet faced the starter with a light NW breeze around 5 to 10 knots
the fleet all got away together with Mozz alongside the rest.
At the top mark Suicide Blonde led from Suburban boys and The Uninvited.
On the second reach a temporary shift in the breeze saw Uninvited and Suburban drop their kites whilst Suicide continued on unhindered gaining a comanding lead that was not challenged from that point, the positions changed for Suburban and Uninvited several times with Suburban eventualy taking out second place.
Results
1st Suicide Blonde - Craig Pete and Brownie
2nd Just Suburban Boys - Snow Rod and Josh
3rd The Uninvited - Mozz Dean Mark Audett (guest sheet hand)

As I am off to NewZealand today I wont be writing a report for the next two weeks so if you are a Gbyc sailor feel free to fill in.

Cheers
