An excellent day for a sailing race with an ENE breeze ranging from about 7 to 15 kts.  Course 18 gave the navigators a bit of a challenge with Blue Division rounding both Goat Island and Goat Buoy on different legs of the course and Green/White only Goat Buoy.

It was good to see a healthy fleet in Blue Division and we welcome the return of Phil and Steven Lucas in Solitude and Colin Wiley and crew in Naughty Call for their first appearance in Saturday Series races with the club.  Also the re-crewed Irukandji with Paul Stubbs and Steve Nash in control was a welcome addition.

It is sad that the number of boats in Green/White Division has declined as it would be a perfect opportunity for Twilight Green and Red Division boats to sail on the weekend.  Handicaps would accommodate non-spinnaker sailing and the shorter course means a shorter afternoon. Please consider.

Next Saturday race is Down Harbour Race 2 (October 17).
