Provisional results for PBSC Series 2 Pointscore 11/03/2017

A big thank you to Geoff for being start boat captain of the day and for doing the BBQing!!! Thank you also to Mick for helping us out with the course and to Alicia for assisting as usual.

It's very difficult to judge a winner of the day ..... the wind was up, down, left, right ..... and goooooone at times. The jellyfish were large, plentiful and seemed to know the course! The tide was racing in and out. Based on Darren's one word comments we could hear from around the course I'm giving the result to the jellyfish :-) It was a good day to have a lock down rudder.

The day showed a lot of promise at times and there was even some two on the trapeze occasionally .... but overall it was a pretty tough day and a day for tactics, reading the conditions and some good luck. Oh, and it was a good day for one-up sailors even after the yardstick penalty was applied where appropriate. ...Read More

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
