Barfoot and Thompson Race 2

Race two of the Barfoot & Thompson combined 2 handed series was a cracker!

More sunshine, warm conditions, and 15-20 knot northerlies made for an epic days sailing.

There was some uncertainty in the morning when no one could spot the start boat (because it wasn’t there)  But we were soon to have services of both the clubs start boats, and after a short delay the  gun sounded for a long reach to haystack with about 17 boats enjoying the conditions.

Planet X was around first, followed by Glory Days, Prozac, Raiatea and  Charlatan  .  Wild Thing, sailing extremely well for an 8.4 metre boat rounded with Montrachet and First Priority, then took off on the gennaker hoist.

It was a great sight of the fleet going down the Rangi coastline with kites up.
The wind filled in for the beat back to Arkles Bay but easy on the bodies as everyone laid the finish without a tack.

Congratulations to Glory Days, Raiatea & Planet X for 1st, 2nd & 3rd and to Flasher for winning $50 as top boat from the other club.
