GBYC club heat4

After the christmas break it was good to have a sail on the bay. The race started in 11 to 15 knot north westerly breeze with four sharpies on the line at the start. all boats were away clear in a near perfect start. This must have been too much for Mozz as for some reason he gybed off and restarted?? with the exception of mozz the boats were all close up the first work with only seconds seperating the first three. This continued for the next two laps when dean had a kite problem letting mozz into third. final results were as follows First Suicide Blonde Merv,Pete and Brownie Second Suburban Boys Snow, Rob and Josh Third Uninvited Mozz, Phil and Jess Forth The Asylum Dean, Paul and Dave After a few drinks under the "tree of Knowledge" plans were made for this weekends Australia day reggata and the upcoming states, just a note on the states they will definately be at Fremantle. Hope a good week is had by all cheers Pete C Busso
