Sail-World.com : Audi Hamilton Island Race Week Day 2 Dawn and a Bundy kind of day
Audi Hamilton Island Race Week Day 2 Dawn and a Bundy kind of day


'Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2013 Dawn Day 2'    Sail-World.com ©

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week Day 2 Another light and variable morning ahead.

The latest from the Weather Bureau - A high [1019 hPa] over the southern Coral Sea extends a ridge onto the north tropical coast of Queensland. A trough will move through southern waters on Tuesday, with a new ridge developing in its wake on Wednesday.

Winds: Southeast to northeasterly 5 to 10 knots with inshore afternoon sea breezes 10 to 15 knots. Seas: 1.2 metres. Swell: Less than 1.5 metres.

What will the courses be today - no one knows, after the soft conditions yesterday threw the Race Commitees plans overboard, similar conditions today will no doubt require them to be equally inventive.

Early visitors to the Marina might see Regatta Director Denis Thompson walking down E arm with a brown paper bag.

There are rumours that he pours rum in the water on predicted soft wind days.

Today, if this is true, we hope he sacrifices a full bottle of Bundy.(Bundaberg Rum) to the weather gods.
