Bright sunshine and a 10 to 14 knot breeze

Bright Sunshine and lots of smiles on Twister 2 sailboat owners

Bright Sunshine on a Sunday and the Phuket Yacht Club race day and the early morning forecast of showers and very light winds behind them another memorable day was the order.

With the weather forecast proven to be wrong and with bright sunshine along with a steady 10 to 14 knot west south-west breeze greeting the 8 boats which consisted of 5 Multihulls and 3 monohulls it looked like it was going to be a wonderful day on the water.

Surf Patrol crew looking happyThe club race officer Pete Gregg set a great course in the confines of Chalong Bay which sent the fleet West to a mark in towards the west end of the bay and the East towards the Barnett safe water mark.

At 11.05 am our wonderful race officer Chandrun sent the combined fleet off and the race was on.

Slainte Math was the first monohull to be right on the start, and this proved pivotal as the race progressed.
Surf Patrol, the Firefly 850 led the multis, but we’re soon overtaken by the new Stealth cat Twister 2 and eventually by Adrenalin, who seemed to be taking a lead out of Team NZ in the Americas Cup.

Don’t push too hard at the start as we have speed on the current fleet.

Bright Sunshine from team AdrenalinThat also proved critical in the final placings on handicap, with the Big tri scoring fastest time in the multis with a top speed of 17 knots at one point in the race, but ultimately finished third, with the new stealth winning the race with the improving Surf Patrol coming second.

 

 

Bright Sunshine and wonderful company.

In the monohull race, The beautiful Aqua, with Mig and Mirke taking a couple of visitors to the club looked a picture out on the course and sailed well to take third place.

Slainte MathMore bright smiles for the crew on JudyBright sunshine and smiles from team AquaThe battle for first came down to 6 seconds on handicap with Judy leading online honours, but a couple of broaches in the gusty weather saw the Beneteau 27.5 Slainte Mirth to gain a well-earned win.

The bright sunshine and beautiful weather brought many people to the yacht club for the afternoon as well as the sailors and the smiles on the hard working staff of the PK restaurant which is always a very welcoming return for the sailors.
