SAGS Report 10/10/2020 15 October 2020 - It turned out to be another nice day on the bay with warm temperatures and winds, as forecast, at around 15-20 knots ESE. There were 25 boats and 76 sailors in the fleet with Oscar being the first away (on time). We started at about the same time as Utopia (he was late, we weren’t…
WAGS REPORT 07/10/2020 10 October 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 10 October 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 10 October 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…
SAGS Report 26/09/2020 1 October 2020 - 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 23/09/2020 1 October 2020 - MBBC Race Control called a Deception Bay port course and we had 16 boats competing with 60 sailors. The start time for Freyja was 13:08 and we had a pretty good start. Conditions were good with wind strength varying between 4 and 8 knots NNW to NNE on the first leg. We remained on a…
SAGS Report 19/09/2020 25 September 2020 - Hi All, I think most of you will agree, Huey has been dishing up some great sailing weather. Long may it continue before the summer howlers start. Following is Brent’s (Oscar) race report from last Saturday, and attached are photos of winners and place getters and start times for this coming Saturday. There goes another…
WAGS Report 16/09/2020 19 September 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 19 September 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 14 September 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…
