2018 TBBC WINTER SERIES - GROUP 1 IN PROGRESS

We're following our usual formula for this year's TBBC Winter Series which will run over two groups of five Sundays either side of the July school holidays. The series is open to all centreboard classes and there is no need to register prior to the series starting. Full details are available here:
 
Group 1 got underway on Sunday 3 June - click here for Latest Results and see below for daily reports and pictures.

WINTER SERIES CANCELLATIONS
 
Cancellation decisions are usually left as late as possible because we, like you, want to sail if we possibly can. We make the decision no later than 7:30 on Sunday morning and then:
  • Update the home page on this website
     
  • Send a text message to everybody we've got a cellphone number for.
DAY 3 - SUNDAY 10 JUNE

A light and shifty northwesterly for today's racing with the breeze almost dropping out completely during the second race. A few of the regulars were missing but we welcomed two new boats to the fleet this week - Tuakana Holmes and Craig Allfrey in the TBBC Sunburst and Jaxon Roddick in his Starling. We've now completed nine races so the results include one discard. There are clear leaders in the Starling (Fergus Baxter), Laser (Reuben Smith) and Open B (Jack Callear) classes but Opti A and Open A are too close to call.
 

 
DAY 2 - SUNDAY 10 JUNE

Another cool and overcast morning with a gentle breeze blowing straight down the channel from Paremata allowed us to set a course that was much truer than last week's and made for a much easier day for the race management team. With a few more of last year's regulars turning up we had a good mixed fleet of 14 boats and some close racing, particularly in the Optimist and Open A fleets. Really good to see Liam McCorrison and Caelan Taylor, who were both going to sail Opti Green taking the step up to join Tessa Thornley and Jack Olson in the A fleet. Thanks this week to Nick Vause who was out on one of the support boats taking pictures.   
 





 
 
    
DAY 1 - SUNDAY 3 JUNE

A cool and overcast morning with a gentle breeze that varied between southeasterly and easterly made for an interesting first day of the series. The short course could probably have been a bit longer but it did mean that the Optimists and Open B (which today was an Open Bic event) had finished all their races and were ashore before the third race on the long course got underway. The long course was badly affected by wind shadow at the top mark and was shortened after race 1 and again after race 2.
