IP Global Autumn Regatta - Clear sky and consistent wind on day 2

At the IP Global Autumn Regatta, day two dawned with a clear sky and a consistent 10-14kt easterly, with 95 boats turning up on the start line to contest races two and three of the event.

With the Etchells and Impala classes selecting courses in a different area of the harbour to the other fleets, Race Officer Sofia Mascia elected to set a Hung Hom start, with the finish just west of Dock Buoy.

The top wind speed recorded was 17.7kts, however it rarely dropped below 10 and was reasonably stable, tracking round to the east throughout the day. Even the rain held off until nearly all the boats were home, giving a perfect day for racing.

The starts for race two were punctuated by gusts which in the case of the Ruffian fleet carried eight boats over early, of whom only two returned. While having nearly 100 boats on two different race tracks was occasionally confusing for the race management team, it was clearly confusing for some of the competitors, as several of the Big Boat Div one boats missed the finish line, with Signal eight and Sell Side Dream scoring DNF for that race.

With conditions holding for race three, the boats were all circumspect about their starts and there were no OCS calls – they also all managed to find the finish line. Only two boats scored a row of bullets for the regatta – Calamansi (Rob Berkley) in Big Boat Division three, and Solstice in the Pandora class, while Jelik managed the same feat on the dual scoring under Hong Kong Performance Handicap (HKPN).

After a rousing rendition by the RHKYC Pipe Band, a well-attended Prizegiving got underway, with prizes being presented by Nicola Evans and Mike Hocking of IP Global, Andrew Kong of Mount Gay Rum and Garry Hui of Heineken.
