Mozz Victorious GBYC 8/12/2012

With a steady nw of about 10 to 15 knots four sharpies faced off.
Suicide Blonde was a no show as Merv was busy with his fledgling catering bussiness and with the Ironman Australia happening on the foreshore brownies lycraphobia was playing up so Pete hopped on board Suburban Boys with Snow and Rob. The Asylum and Norma along with The Uninvited made up the fleet.

The start got underway with no incidents seeing Mozz at the pin take off with good speed in front of Craig.
Once again Dean showed form off the line.
First mark saw Mozz lead Snow Dean and Craig. No change at the gybe or bottom mark.
On the work Mozz held onto his lead and the rest swapped places to the top.
The run through the paddock the fleet cut slightly into Mozzs lead. At this point Deans addition of auto cleating halyard saw him carry the kite to the shore to fix the problem effectivly putting him out of the race.

At this point Mozz never missed a beat and finished the last lap a comfortable winner from Craig and bro Snow close behind.

FINAL PLACES

The Uninvited   Mozz, Tom and Phil
Norma             Craig, andy and Anton
Suburban Boys Snow Rob and Pete
The Asylum      Dean, Paul and Ian

Next saturday sees the third club heat and hopefully all starters
If you are hungry before the race dont forget to buy one of Mervs gourmet rolls
Good luck with the container packing for those doing so at MBSC on sunday.

Till then
Cheers
