CYAA Qld’s Annual Pursuit 2013 in pics. A beut sail, 11 entrants , 8 starters 8 finishers. Euan joined the fleet mid-sail with Portaethwy  so 9 on the Water for the day.

Congratulations to Safona (Stuart and Maris) on their first success in this event.

The breeze came in at about 11:40-ish as often happens this time of year and despite the lighter conditions for the early starters the handicaps erred on the tough side for the  late starting big boats. The fleet finished within an entirely acceptable 35 min window. The on beach social was ,as ever, excellent fun.

We look forward to next years event. Given the fleet was home late afternoon it is likely we will move the start time for the zero hour boat (Merry Mac to 13:00 hrs in 2014). Moving the fleet back 60 mins should allow the sea-breeze to settle for everyone and  therefore decrease one variable for the handicap team.

 

Congratulations to Stuart and Maris
