The BOM predicted 10 to 20 knot winds with occasional showers……….not an encouraging forecast for our first day of official WAGS racing for the 2020/2021 season.

CARISMA’s account of the SAGS The forecast of 15 to 20 knots proved to be spot on, good work BOM. The start area was a busy place at 1300 hours with four boats starting within a two minute period, it was good to see the pre start area was clear of later starting boats. Carisma…
