WAGS Report 14/10/2020

Bom’s prediction “up to 25 knots in the northern bay” was fairly close although we did see 33k apparent wind in one squall. It was not a day for flying spinnakers as a couple of boats found out, not a pretty sight seeing a spinnaker disintegrate. We opted for the screechier for the first two…

WAGS REPORT 07/10/2020

Light conditions were forecast for the race so the cruising #2 was replaced with a #1 headsail. Being late to the start area didn’t help with pre start preparations which turned out to be non existent, as  the start line was crossed it became clear that the sail change hadn’t included moving the blocks to…

SAGS Report 03/10/2020

Do you remember the yarn I told last month about ships and the Klabautermann?  Well, “Kaveinga” Klabautermann definitely appears to be very partial to Bundy and  why not, he’s a salty old sailor after all.   It all started without drama in a steady SE breeze of about 15-17 kt.  There was our arch-competitor “DoubleD”…

WAGS Report 30/09/2020

WAGS for 30.9.20 saw a smaller than usual fleet as many boats and crews were lucky enough to be cruising down the bay. Seabreeze was forecasting a light E-NE breeze with low water about 2.30. A starboard course was set giving a nice gentle spinnaker leg to start with a N-NE breeze. We set our…

An interesting start to the day with a lot of wind. Me running late and several crew looking for a ride on entering the club. With a crew of 5, Simon (Happy Daze), JVP (Jaguar), Paul and Kim  we scurried to the start line and headed to Reef Point with a reefed main and still…

WAGS Report 16/09/2020

What a great day on the water for our WAGS. A good steady SE breeze to start so we had a kite run upto D-Bay Red but it was a fickle breeze and it soon dropped down to about 10 knots. We were lead away by Cariama and Double D followed by us, Zingara, Kavinga…
