No wind. It was close to a dead heat to be first across the start line between the Tum Sirocco and Acrospire III. Race adjucicator in the Race Control tower, Tone Hoppe, gave it to Acrospire III. Race abandoned just when Acrospire III had a glow up to lead the bunched up fleet to be first to the top mark with Fairwinds not far behind. In their own small breeze windows,Ettrick was the first boat to pop a kite. She was quickly follwed by Avian and Dingo. It looked like they had a chance to follow Fairwinds and be ahead of Kingurra around the to mark mark. Two Tum under kites approaching each other were a race feature at the time the Race Officer said enough. Thanks to all those 16 boats of the Classic fleet that competed in Race 3. Cyan was sadly missed the street talk was a problem after leaving her marina pen. A photo album of Jan
Williamson photos from Mercedes III will follow.

Race 4 19th June next Winter Series race.
