SAGS sailing 16 November 2017 - With the wind prediction of South to South East at 15 to 20 knots it was decided to sail the safer course in Deception Bay. Jupiter led the fleet followed by Amazing Grace, Asgard and Divine Madness. Basically a reach to DBay red, a reach to Caboolture river then a tack to the finish line.…
WAGS sailing 9 November 2017 - Thanks to Peter D for the following report. (Trevor should have done it but as he was busy being towed in by the Coast Guard DMC gave him a pass).   The BOM predicted 10 to 15 knot SE increasing to 20 knots in the evening.   Divine Madness led the fleet off on a…
SAGS sailing 9 November 2017 - 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…
SAGS sailing 24 October 2017 - What a strange weekend! We went from the worst day possible for a yacht race to the best day imaginable in 24 hours. The BOM predicted heavy rain and 25 knots of wind in the afternoon for Saturday the 21st. Many sailors gathered at the clubhouse and watched the rain come down with long faces.…
WAGS sailing 19 October 2017 - The bad weather continued with forecasts of 25 knot wind and the 80% probability of rain. Despite fears of a “no race”, 6 boats from the MBBC joined up with 3 boats from the NCYC and enjoyed a great day on and in the water.   The inclement forecast should have been enough to ensure…
SAGS sailing 16 October 2017 - Same scenario as last week. BOM predicted S to ESE at 15 to 20 knots which scares away the smaller boats. The decision was made in the clubhouse to stick with an inside (Deception Bay) course because of a 1 to 1.5 metre swell out front. As it turned out, Ron on Carisma led the…
WAGS sailing 12 October 2017 - The BOM predicted 10 knot northerly winds so it was a pleasant surprise to find a 15 to 20 knot breeze. Bill and Vince (Divine Madness) chose a starboard course followed by Blade Runner (Geoff sailing single handed which would not have been a problem if the wind remained at 10 knots), Jaguar and Volando.…
SAGS sailing 11 October 2017 - Unfortunately the BOM predicted S to SE at 15 to 20 knots which tends to keep the smaller boats in the Marina. Having said that we still managed 11 boats on the day, so a good turnout considering the forecast. The wind was supposed to drop off in the afternoon, which it did, so the…
WAGS sailing 6 October 2017 - The BOM correctly predicted NE winds at 10 to 15 knots and Geoff on Blade Runner chose a Port course for the first of the summertime races for the year. Ben and Bob got off to a flying start in Oscar, closely followed by Zingara, Happy Daze, Ripple and Double D. The late starters, including…
SAGS sailing 3 October 2017 - Another good day on the water with 15 boats tackling the off shore course in Moreton Bay. The BOM prediction of South to SW at 10k was a bit off with Amazing Grace albeit starting late due to crewman and helmsman Chris running late, leading the fleet off in 8 to 11 knots from the…
