IMG 2307Day 1

A new venue brings new challenges. A swinging breeze delayed the start by about 15 minutes. The wind conditions varied from very light to about 7 knots with plenty of shifts to keep the skippers thinking.

Craig Smith (Vic) was dominant all day and has a comfortable lead. Some good results has seen Paul Littledyke (SA) finish the day in 2nd with Glenn Dawson (WA) in 3rd.

With things running smoothly we have completed 10 races with some fickle conditions forecast for Sunday to keep everyone on their toes.
