Charmonet - RNZYS Winter Series race 10 carnage video

by Colin Preston on 20 Sep 2012
Gennaker wrap Colin Preston

Going into the final RNZYS Winter Series race with only three points between the leading four Div A boats Charmonet needed a good result to retain her series lead.

PredictWinds forecast was on target in delivering a blustery 30 - 40 knots for this final race and all foredeck crew donned lifejackets for the ride ahead. However with a reef carried until the run up the harbour, things didn’t go quite according to plan.

Final results: Second - Gen Hcap, First – PHRF, 10th – Line, injured skipper, broken window, blown Gennaker, lost watch.
