RHKYC Spring Regatta, Day 2

Race Officer Simon Boyde felt confident enough to offer a Club start this morning, in front of Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s Kellett Island base, and was proved right with over 12 knots of south easterly on offer for the first start for day two of Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s Spring Regatta. Courses were set to make the most of the east of the harbour up to Shau Kei Wan and Tai Koo Shing.

In a first for the Club’s Cadets, 16 members aged from 9 to 16 years were out on the water all weekend, crewing on boats racing from Etchells, J/80’s and Magic 25’s, up to Mills 41, Ambush, competing in the Big Boat A division.

Neither heavy grey skies, which threatened rain all day, nor a protest staged by 200+ fishing boats could dampen competitors’ spirits, and by the time the first fishing boats were seen through the murk, the first race of the day was over for all but the Etchells and the Sportsboats.

A fishing boat procession caused a significant hiatus of around 90 minutes, with the AP lowered at 1529hrs to signal the start of the final race in this three race series. Mindfull of the approaching dusk, Boyde set the same course for all fleets, shortened to two laps for the Big Boat A division, and one lap for all other classes.

This proved a well-considered and popular decision, and after a few quickly expedited protest hearings, the prizegiving was able to get underway just before 2000hrs, with the assembled crowd showing their (noisy) appreciation for a good weekend’s well run racing.
