shy thunder Posted May 3, 2004 Report Share Posted May 3, 2004 Mari 4.3 wins Captain Cook Discovery Trophy. Winds 18 to 20 knots gusting to 25 during first heat settling to 18 during 2nd heat. This is decided on club handicap, bad start in first heat let the nacra 14s get a good lead 5 seconds across start line had to be careful during gybes at start due to large chop and gusts everyone was cautious before starting. It was hard tacking in the stong gusts and the steep short chop that occasionally rose to 3feet, made good time downwind was only passed by tornadoes on downwind legs with their massive amounts of sail area. Did well in 2nd heat and managed to nearly point as high the 14squares with their centreboards, had a good dice with kooka a 14 square he finally passed me on last windward leg. A good race by all in the last race of the season, congrats to Tornadoe winning the vyc section, someone really has to look at changing the vyc handicap for these monsters, dave and bob sailed extremely well. cheers d Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
