SAGS sailing

The forecast was for 10 to 15 NE and that proved to be the case. A fleet of thirteen was led away by the early starters Jupiter, Asgard, Divine Madness and Sea Sprite then followed by Jaguar, Volando, Zingara and Oscar all hard on the breeze working up to Dbay Red.

 

The new Saturday trial course out to the south cardinal mark off Bribie was enjoyed by all but some fine tuning will need to be made. Next group away were Rimfire, Grecher, Crews Missile (this being her last qualifying race), with Seraya and Sentier last away chasing the fleet.

 

Rimfire, Crews Missile and Grecher had a tussle while running down the early leaders  Volando and Zingara. Jerry kept Volando ahead to take 1st, closely followed by Grecher 2nd. and Rimfire 3rd, followed by Crews Missile beating Zingara out of the coveted 4th place.

 

The Kingfisher Series race was also on with War Canoe, Page III, Euphoria II and French Kiss competing. The sailing section once again had a good number of boats on the water, congrats to all.
