Barfoot and Thompson Series Race 1

Boats Willing - Breeze Not!!!

What a fantastic turnout for the first race of the Barfoot & Thompson combined 2 handed yacht race series between the Weiti and Gulf Harbour Boat Clubs.

Eighteen boats crossed the start line on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning in about 8 knots of breeze headed upwind for haystack with a course around Tiri Island before heading back to the finish.

Unfortunately the wind God's were not cooperating and the breeze eventually glassed off completely on a shortened course with the result of only two boats making the finish off Haystack.

Congratulation to "Charlatan" for taking out the gun and handicap and "Wild Thing" the only other boat to finish, crossing 8 minutes behind.

With only two boats recording a result the series is still wide open and we look forward to the entire fleet of 25 entries lining up for the next race on Sunday, 28th October.
