WAGS Sailing 18 June 2017 - The BOM had a strong wind warning in place at 11:00 with no westerly component.   This automatically cancels the race, our third SWW cancellation for the year.   Commendable mentions to Outsidedge and Rimfire for venturing out all the same.   The skippers looking out at the threatening clouds from the Club restaurant prior…
SAGS Sailing 15 June 2017 - Well, ramblings from a sailor boy once again. I’ve been watching some of the America’s cup challenge races in the mighty RC50 cats and as an ex kiwi, revelling in the ATNZ results. Also the reports from a “Sailor girl” on Facebook, hence the above “sailor boy” moniker. Anyway, to the job in hand.  …
WAGS Sailing 11 June 2017 - The BOM predicted southerly winds at 10 to 15 knots with plenty of sunshine.   Allan and Tanya (Asgard) led the fleet off on a port course in light and fluky winds.   The breeze remained light when the main pack got away and it became obvious that luck was going to play a big part…
SAGS Sailing 11 June 2017 - Not quite the 22 boats we had last Saturday, but a good turnout just the same with 13 boats out on the water with some others I think saving themselves for the Cowan Marathon on Sunday. We had variable conditions with the two early starters, Asgard and Jupiter unfortunately getting caught in the light South…
WAGS Sailing 7 June 2017 - The BOM predicted light 10 to 15 knot southerly winds and this is pretty much what we got apart from a moment or 2 while the wind dropped off to very very light before resuming again.   There were 14 MBBC boats enjoying the last day of autumn, this was a WAGS record high for…
SAGS Sailing 31 May 2017 - Another awesome day on the water with a total of 22 boats competing in what ended up to be light to moderate winds basically from the S’East with a shift to the East towards the latter part of the race. BOM predicted variable winds and that was about what we got. Certainly a day for…
WAGS Sailing 26 May 2017 - The BOM predicted very light variable winds but again the wind gods smiled on us and the fleet was greeted with light but constant south east winds. Divine Madness and Happy Daze led the fleet (12 boats) away on a starboard course.   Rooger, Volando, Oscar, Trim and Zingara made up the midfield contingent and were…
SAGS Sailing 24 May 2017 - The BOM forecast light southerly winds for Saturday afternoon. There was very light northerly winds in the morning gradually turning southerly. Observing the Pearl Challenge fleet, there were fears that there would not be sufficient wind to complete the race. As it happened, the wind gods were kind to the SAGS fleet and, while the…
WAGS Sailing 19 May 2017 - The BOM predicted light southerly winds for today’s race and there were concerns that there may be insufficient wind to complete the race and the fleet was expected to be small. As it happened, Deception Bay was alive with activity as 10 boats from the NPYC and 12 boats form the MBBC enjoyed a great…
SAGS Sailing 17 May 2017 - A total of 17 boats out on Saturday in what was good but challenging conditions. BOM predicted 10 to 15 knots from the SSE. We had 14 to 16 from the SE at the start with a swing to the South on the beat to Garnet rock then the breeze dropping off for the run…
