Amber Dreams dominates short course series


Thousands gather to see Amber Dreams dominate short course series
With the keel boats doing an off shore race and the tasars down to two boats it was left to the sharpies to entertain the tourists on board the Sea Princess anchored just of the start line.
I believe their program was to watch the sailing before going ashore to see the sights.
With 2500 cameras clicking and a hand picked forward hand for the conditions Amber Dreams was unstoppable
With the breeze sometimes around around 20k from the south close racing seemed the order of the day. Amber dreams was always in your sights to windward but with the lure of the cameras out to sea Snow cleared out off the breeze taking out both races and pin up boy on the Sea Princess. Well done boys
the minor placings were left to Suicide Blonde and no Regrets
beers on the lawn under the tree of knowledge followed and a Halloween party at the club
This week sees the second club heat so should be a good day,
Even Craigo turned up and was making noise about sailing and looking for a crew
till next week
cheers
Pete
