Match Race Cup races 2 and 3
In the morning the wind was so light
that the Electrons had to sail on
the south side.
'Black Shags' are not often seen at Onepoto.
(There are plenty of 'Little Black Shags' though)
Identification of a 'Black Shag'
is by the yellow lower jaw.
The race course had been reversed so
some were confused about which way to
round the marks.
This pink is now port around, Geoff is
heading for a starboard rounding but
is corrected by Bruce.
As they round correctly John tries a
starboard rounding close ahead...
and catches his mast in Bruce's backstay
swinging around and trapping Geoff
between them.
The 3 drift off downwind... and require a jungle excursion to
recover them.
Terry diving on a downwind in a gust.
Geoff submarining. Terry drives his bow under... and resurfaces.
