Romany 2's B&G Simrad 100 2013 report

13 Aug 2013

We had a fearful warning from Met Service, claiming that the wind was going to be 10 knots more than all the other services were saying. Occasionally they do get it right, but on this day they were out of step with reality. What all the forecasts agreed was that it was going to be wet, and the wind would increase till about 3:00pm and go right pretty much all the time.
As our boat is fully powered with its 2 furler in 15 knots of true breeze, I decided to opt for this sail at the start, instead of making the more sensible choice of starting with 1 and changing down to the smaller sail on the long broad reach to Motuora. I had hoped that we would have close to 15 knots by start time, but there was only about 10 knots by my guess.
We started really well at the pin, more or less alone down there with everyone else up by the start boat. We sailed along in splendid isolation for a while until the rest of the fleet filtered down to our line from further to windward, but we were too slow with the small sail, so got passed by a number of the yachts in our fleet by the time we hoisted the spinnaker a few hundred metres before Emu point.

From there it was a slightly interesting reach along the Eastern side of Motutapu ? it tended to be a bit tight at times, but was always manageable for us as Romany is incredibly polite under pressure, and soon we were eased off and on a very broad reach towards Motuora island.

Pepe's B&G Simrad 100 2013 report
12 Aug 2013

After the debacle at the start of the last race I noticed the race committee had wisely laid the line with a heavy bias to the pin end to avoid another pile up at the committee boat.

We opted for a leeward pin end start and got away cleanly with a good start below but advanced on the fleet. We had the fractional code zero (FRO) set and were a bit underpowered but had done this deliberately so we could do an easy peal to the masthead gennaker through Motuihe passage. We actually peeled to the masthead gennaker slightly earlier than I had though just after Islington beacon and sailed through the passage with a nice angle. The breeze then went right forward and we struggled to lay the next point but just got around and then peeled to the masthead spinnaker for the run down to tiri. I thought that if the breeze was currently the most ?right hand? that it would be there was a chance it was going to swing back to the left (east) so I wanted to get a gybe in early, it also looked light under rakino so I wanted to avoid that. We were the first to gybe and carried on for about 10min then gybed back. We seemed to make a small gain out of that so decided we would want to be the first to gybe back to port further down and be inside on the left hand turn to Motuora. We did our gybe about halfway down, At first it looked good but once we gybed back Shreks house and pawn broker had made a small gain
