Sail-World.com : Nautica Typhoon Series – Mirs Bay Weekend

Nautica Typhoon Series – Mirs Bay Weekend

'They’re off! - Mirs Bay Race, HHYC Nautica Typhoon Series 2011'    Winfred Li/HHYC    Click Here to view large photo

This week-end the fine sunny weather created perfect conditions for the annual races up to Mirs Bay and back, in the north of Sai Kung Country Park. With 77 boats taking part this year, the overnight stop and BBQ party at Wong Shek normally attracts a good numbers of cruisers as well as racers.

A steadily building breeze on the Saturday topped out at 12 kts for a finish just south of Gau Tau. IRC A and B sailed a longer course taking in East Nine Pin, whilst the rest went the direct route north east.

For the Saturday evening the anchorage off Wong Shek pier was a colourful sight with battle flags raised and crews taking a cooling swim prior to the party.

For the race back on Sunday the start was delayed for an hour for the sea breeze to fill in, and by noon the fleets had started in around 8 kts, and again by 1400 12 kts of wind had filled in for a finish by Little Palm Beach. Again the large boats did the longer course; 24 nautical miles taking in Bluff Island and East Nine Pin again.
