18ft Skiffs- 3-Buoys Challenge, Race 4 - Strong winds stop race

Elizabeth Walsh christens the new Gotta Love It 7 skiff - Day 4 - 3 Buoys Challenge - Sydney Harbour November 3, 2012
Today, the recent strong wind weather pattern in Sydney continued causing the abandonment of the scheduled Race 4 of the 3-Buoys 18ft Skiff Challenge series.

Delays of more than one hour occurred before the starter finally declared the race officially off.

The race had been due to see the first season outing for the new Gotta Love It 7 skiff, which was christened earlier in the day.

NB: Pick the Podium competition will start with next week’s Race 1 of the NSW Championship.

The club’s regular spectator ferry will follow next Sunday’s NSW Championship race, leaving Double Bay Wharf at 2.15pm
