Weekly Update

Butch belts them at EFYC.
I managed to catch the end of EFYC race on Saturday. Butch had a good margin over Vicious, young Renners and older Renners.

Bullet belts them at MBSC.

Glamour crew of past champions and self confessed greats Ash Gabrielson, Mark Lewis and Grinder blitzed the dozen Sharpies that hit the water yesterday. In a gpleasant 12 to 15 knot sou wester the in form crew of quickly made up for being OCS winning by a minute from Impact that also restarted, unnecessarily as it turned out.

With only a minute or so separating the fleet at Club bouy the reach to Addison set up many of the positions. Bullit took a commanding minute lead, Greg Creeper had a rate poor reach an later retire with a broken third stay. Some have suggested he pulled a heart muscle and retired to the bar early!!!! By Deepwater the places were very much set and not a lot changed although the racing was close. Paul Schnieder had “Almost a Skiff” going well, Keysie was closer behind, Wise Magic snapping at there heals and Matt Jahn on Origami Underwear trying to sail the coffin like a 49er.

In the end Bullet with a comfortable win, second Impact and third to Almost a Skiff.

Next Sunday is the Opening of PFYS, which is the first heat of the Travellers series.
