Twilight Series 1; Race 3 6 May 2023 The conditions for the afternoon made sailing easy for the fleet of boats. The westerly breeze averaging around 6 knots made it an easy day for racing, however, the strong outgoing tide added a little challenge as they made their way towards Squance. Kurt in Waka Tere and Michael in Bula were the only representative in their respective categories. It was very unfortunate that the others were not available to participate. We hope to see more at the next race.
Participation was better in the keelboat PY category, 7 boats made the start. Brio had a near perfect start as he snugged in at the pin end and was able to hold his position with the bigger boats. It was also nice to have Hellmut joining the race onboard Petit Bateau; welcome back. With the breeze easing, the race committee made the call to shorten the race after one loop. Brio took 1st place followed by Shardana in 2nd and Petit Bateau in 3rd.
