Mills Reef - WOW Race  3 2017-2018 season

Another pleasant evening on the water for race 3 of the WOW season. The wind was quite barely there making it tricky to finish the race. The wind was between 5 and 10 knots throughout the evening.

The course was set with boats heading down the Otumoetai channel and out to 10w for the cruisers or 3w then 10w for the racing fleet. The racing fleet ran spinnakers from 10w, although most had dropped them by banks buoy when the wind went on the nose.

It was a mixed night for the racing boats with quite a spread for the finish time. Whatever took the honours followed by Rascal Tom, then Selah II and High Point.

The cruising boats were also spread out in their finish times. Otway III was first with Frenzy very close behind and Candela very close too.

Thanks again to all the boat owners for making it possible for the ladies to get on the water for another nice evening.  

Registration is at 5pm at the TYPBC club rooms.  Please let Lizanne know by Tuesday evening whether you are coming along or not - email or txt 022 137 0145.

Thanks again to all our Sponsors who support us and the generous boat owners who provide their boats. 

Here at WOW we like to have fun as well as practise our sailing so for the last race of each half of the season we dress to a theme...and there's been some beauties over the years!
