Sunday Series I 2023 (Race 5)

After Saturday’s slog to Changi Buoy and back, the race committee thought that conditions could not get any worst for the Sunday Series I finale…. but it did. Starting with a heavy downpour at noon, sailors were sent to prepare their boats in the rain – with the hopes of the ongoing weather systems providing residual breeze to power the fleet to squance and back. Sadly the first (and only) attempt to start saw all 9 boats struggle to cross the line, as winds sputtered and failed to materialize. An N Flag was eventually raised, signaling a race abandonment and the commencement of a long and wet wait for wind.

Ever hopeful that a new breeze will swoop in to save the afternoon, the race committee’s optimism led to a nearly 2hr wait before conceding and putting up the AP over A signal – ending the afternoon without a race. The disappointing outcome meant that the series results would be tallied based on all 4 races completed prior to this weekend, and the results are as follows:

IRC

1st – Waka Tere

2nd – Minx

3rd – Adona

PY

1st – Brio

2nd – Invictus

3rd – Birregurra

Multihull

1st – Miss Visayan

Congratulations to all the winners! Despite the poor weather conditions this weekend, it was great to see a chilling but willing fleet in attendance. We now take a break from Club Racing for the rest of June – as we focus our attention to the upcoming inaugural CSC @ Tioman Regatta 2023 (17-23 June). Club Racing shall resume on the first weekend of July – See you all then!
