A pic from the Bay to Bay.
By my count there were 17 RL24SK's, 3 DK's and one or two 28's. That was a good roll up (every 6th boat was an RL) in what was the smallest fleet for many years, 120 odd. The lack of a public holiday has had an effect.
The pic shows Chill Ouat leading Apache (partly obscured) and Steel Away making their way across Sheridan Flats on Sunday morning. This was the only easy spinnaker run in the whole race. Winds were SW or thereabouts all weekend, 15 to 20 on Saturday, sometimes lighter on Sunday. The odd gust kept everyone on their toes.Blue Tac won the RL challenge, others to perform well on PBH were Dopamine and Steel Away.
Full results should be on the HBSC web site shortly.
