Provisional results for PBSC Club Championship April 29th 2016.

Thank you to John Goldsmith, Kerry Holmes and Alicia for their continued support of the club and for doing a fantastic job running the races on a particularly tricky day wind/tide wise.

Training:  30/10/2016 - Sailing a Hobie 16 one-up

Its been 4 weeks since putting the furling jib on the Hobie 16 and this is my appraisal. Basically this is an enhancing technology not a disruptive technology.

Week 1 25 - 30 knots 2 foot wind chop. Didn't get the furler working properly on the first attempt while rigging single handed in a 25 knot 30 knot on shore breeze, went ok on the water until some righting practice and my fitness called an end to the day.

Week 2 Glam 18 - 20 knot Noréaster. Fun fun fun. no problems in three races Big loose on a speed run afterwards! More righting practice!

Week 3 15 knot variable southerly. Rigged one hole further back things just keep getting better.

Week 4 5- 15 knot gradient Noréaster shifty and patchy. Boat performed best yet. ...Read More
