After reading last week’s report re Pat and his no ice episode, I was beside myself with laughter, How could this occur, 2 people 2 bags of ice and both left behind, Well things happens in 3 and Pats week of bad luck had just begun!
A keen 15knot easterly greeted us for the first leg to Lukes, low tide 4.09pm, no3 jib sailing, perfect conditions.
At the start FGO hit the line on time and with speed like a bat out of hell and footed fast across the river on starboard, pursued by RBO to windward and then XWP with AFB unusually lagging a bit, short-handed.

The game we played was called Yacht Racing. My Dad says that it is not a game and that it is a serious sport. He plays it every Saturday.
The day began with a typical summer NSW Sydney harbour forecast a 15 to 20 Knt NE sea breeze for our trip up to South Head YA rounding mark. The three normal antagonists lined up for our trek up the harbour (SF, LEOG & AE).
Long course series race 2 up to Taylors Bay and back – 8-16knt noreaster which had a lot of east in it, and swung and gusted a bit. High tide 4.39pm, super sailing conditions.
AFB won the start nicely at mid line followed to windward by FGO and RBO – XWP trailing unusually – and the sprint on starboard to the first tack was on.
