RHKYC China Coast Regatta 2011 - Competitors in the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s China Coast Regatta gathered at this morning’s start line in an overcast 14 knot easterly, which encouraged Race Officer Steve Bourne to set a 1.8nm course for the Racing 0 and 1 Divisions, and 1.4nm for Division 2.

The proceedings got underway, with Division 0 followed by 1 and 2, then the Classic Cruisers and HKPN were given a joint start for their one islands course for the day.

The windward/ leeward races at this year’s Regatta include, for the first time, a requirement to pass through the start line on the upwind leg. Introduced to ensure safety of the different paced fleets at the leeward mark, the new arrangement caught out visitor, Audi ultra, who graciously retired from Race 1 after learning of their omission of the gate.

At around mid-day, the breeze softened to 5 knots, then died almost completely, leading to half the Racing fleet exceeding their time limits. EFG Bank Mandrake, Red Kite II and Jelik 2 took the divisional line honours, and also a win on corrected time.

The RO then went on a long search for breeze, finding 7 knots and brilliant sunshine in the Beaufort channel and setting a short islands course for the Racing Divisions. While Bourne elected to shorten Classic Cruising, HKPN and Racing 0 at Stanley Mark, and was Racing 1 and 2 were shortened at TCS 2 in order to keep them inside the time limits.

At the present time, a request for redress is scheduled to be heard after Day 2 racing, which may change the results for Racing 1 significantly, however based on provisional results going into Day 2, Jelik 2 heads up Racing 0, EFG Bank Mandrake heads up Racing 1 and Dexter II Racing 2. Classic Cruisers have Moonblue 2 at the head of the table, and No One Else is leading HKPN.

Provisional Results are available at http://www.rhkyc.org.hk/ccr2011results.aspx
