Day 1 saw great conditions with 10-15 knot winds. 3 races were run. Race 1 kicked off about 1pm with a fair bit of nevous energy on the start line. The fleet all seem a bit early to the start line but it saw a clean start for everyone. The usual suspects were contesting the top places. Official day 1 results still to come. Race 2 was run in slightly lighter conditions and saw some more of the lightweights challenging for the top spots. Race 3 saw the wind fill back in and planning conditions for everyone off the wind with some fast finishes. More to come over the weekend so stay tuned.
Results are not quite right, we dont drop a race till we have had 5 races, so at the moment , its qld 1,2
Here you go Antsc, a view from the course. Thanks to Richard, Sarah and Mark for manning the helm and various cameras.
Looked like some tough racing out there today but really enjoyable to watch. I'll post some video as soon as I get a chance to edit it. Good luck tomorrow and Monday and I hope the conditions are as good or better than today's so you get some more good racing in.
Some gopro footage of the day. This was heading home after the racing had finished so some tired arms no doubt.
And one of the starts, plenty of jostling for position and looked great from where we were.
Day 2 Wrap up. Well we joked how it was going to be light winds for the nationals. For some it was no joke today with 1st place sailors sliding to 10th in races and 10th place sailors upgrading to 1st. So it was a challenging day and other words were also used to describe the conditions by sailors too. Still that's racing and today was still arguably better than mowing the lawn, just!!
Day 3 - planning conditions for most of the day saw fast racing and another change in sailors placing. Great day to finish the nationals. Results are up. Beers are on and presentation about to start. Congratulations to all the Queensland.
