The ideal conditions saw 24 boats and 79.5 crew (congratulations Cate) front the start line with Happy Daze leading the fleet off to Garnet rock. There were interesting times at the Reef point marker as Happy Daze, Oscar, Pura Vida…

WAGS Report 11/11/2020

Wags Skippers and Sailors Another beautiful day on the water with ideal conditions for an afternoon of gentle sailing. After the last two starts it was disappointing to start almost ten seconds late, however, we were able to make up those valuable seconds before we got to Godwin Beach. (So much for gentle sailing). We…

WAGS Report 04/11/2020

Wags skippers and Sailors For the first time since arriving from Gladstone, Ragtop managed to start on time, although there was a rumour that we didn’t start late in the DMC Cup. There weren’t many boats ahead of us when we started (advantage of starting on time) and we were able to take the lead…

WAGS Report 21/10/2020

Light winds were forecast for WAGS this week, 10kts and under. Not generally a Blue Moon day, but the course indicated was the D-bay red, Bribie cardinal run and with predominantly an Easterly blowing, there would be two longish reaches. And we do love a reach. A little late for the start, we slipped along…

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…
