2015 Winter Series Race 2 May 17
Attached is the Race 2 entry list with the allocated handicaps and Sailing Instructions. A list and descriptions of the RMYS Courses allocated for Classic racing is attached to the Race 2 SI’s
Race 2 Venue
The race will be conducted at the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron. The Classics say thanks to the RMYS Sailing Director Allicia Rae with assistance from Alistair Hart for making this change of race venue at short notice happen.
Race 2 Allocated handicaps.
As the first race of the 2015 Winter series was abandoned for lack of wind reasons the handicaps assigned for race 1 will now apply to race 2.
Race 1 photo’s
For those who want to be reminded why Race 1 was abandoned take a look at the attached link. These photos’s were taken from the HBYC start boat.
1st on Corrected time recognition
In line with the words “from small things big things grow” the Classics will present an award to the Classic yacht that come’s home first on corrected time in our 2015 Winter Series racing. To start this process and with thanks and compliments to Tina of Melbourne, the corrected time winner for each race of the 2015 winter Series will receive a pack of Neverfail bottled water.
Forecast weather conditions for Sunday.
Current BoM forecast says a quiet day for Sunday. The SI’s Time Limit for the race is the first Classic yacht home within 2 hours and the last home within 3 hours from the race start time.
Additional RMYS events on Sunday
RMYS will be conducting a two handed race scheduled to start at 11:00am. With quiet conditions forecast and the course selection unknown, the possibility is high for combined fleet mark rounding’s.
Big news. Only now received a mail from Jim Hutchinson saying the Tumlaren, Dingo, with the help of Celia Dymond and Janet Dean, has beaten the recent wet weather and completed her mast repair work in time to be with us on Sunday. Lots of mast work sorted out.
The Classics are watching the progress of Andy Indrans efforts to have Corio Vertue with us in Sunday. She’s back in the water but still a bit fragile. A note in the most recent edition of Classic Boat tells us wooden versions of this Laurent Giles Classic are still being built.
Pastime II is out of the water at HBYC being cleaned up and Blackadder is attending to mast maintenance at RYCV.
Good news from Doug Jenkin. We’ll see a new look Blue Jacket. Apparently the new look refers to her topsides colour and water line location.
Across the fleet lot’s of boat for boat battles will be on. The Classic RBYC Derby with Kingurra and Frances will be closely watched and in the mix your handicapper has been busy. No mistakes is the advice.
So full on Classic Racing is with us again. Sunday 10:30 am.
Regards to all
