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…

SAGS Report 12/09/2020

BOM’s prediction 15-20K was spot on and with the strong SE winds for the last couple of days it was decided to sail in the bay, 16 boats attended, not bad for the conditions. We decided to try the screecher for the first 2 legs obtaining 12k regularly on the way to Deception Bay red.…

WAGS Report 09/09/2020

A 1306 start time didn’t look too promising for OD. So with light East / East South East winds predicted we decided early in the piece to have a bit of spinnaker fun and headed out wide from the start so as to position ourselves ready to hoist and run to DBay Red. This allowed…

SAGS Race Report  5/9/20 Before the race we thought “a clean boat, a good start time, a NE wind 11 knots, half the race under spinnaker, we are in with a chance” By the time we started the wind was already turning towards the North and freshening. The first leg to Dbay Red was close…

WAGS Report 2/09/2020

It was a nice spring day for Wednesday’s race. Spirited started on starboard a minute behind Seraya in about 10knots of NNE wind. The guys out front didn’t seem as far away as last few races. Wind may have been lighter and shifting before our start? We rounded reef point still about a minute behind…

SAGS Report 29/08/2020

Nice to be here again, with our new time slot. Arrived at start with a few minutes to spare, taken up easily enough bearing away and going around again, wind fresh and over we go, just short of gunnels in water, for the next hour or so. Straight away high lighting that list of self…

WAGS Report 26/08/2020

To all you wonderful sailors at MBBC, Being inspired to write this race report wasn’t my first choice, but since I’ve been coming to the club for around 8 years now, and yesterday’s win was a different kind of win, it’s probably about time that I step up to the plate and gave a WAGS report from my…

SAGS Report – 22/08/2020

SAGS Report – 22/08/2020   With 10 minutes to go before our start time the radio crackled to life and we heard “Double D has rounded D’Bay Red”. Great… We were wondering how many boats and so a call to race control and we were informed Double D, Blue Moon and O.D and Prophecy were…

WAGS REPORT 12/08/2020

Well, the forecast was correct for once, 15/25 knots early easing to 10 knots later with thunderstorms,  15 minutes before the start Sundance V was recording 21knots NNW and the call was made not to use the big spinnaker and go with the asymmetric, as it would be easier to gybe at north reef.  Then…

WAGS Report 05/08/2020

I am very eager to fly a spinnaker during any race if possible. But at the WAGS races Helen and I are normally 2 up. Last Wed , however, Tony was sailing with us. It became a spinnaker day! Unfortunately, just as we were about to start the wind backed to about 70 deg apparent.…
