It was a picture perfect day on Port Phillip, starting the day with a ray of sunshine and a gentle whisper of breeze. The temptation of rolling out the banana lounge and sipping on Piña coladas from the deck of Sandringham Yacht Club was high, but the show must go on!

A big day in the office it was, and time to get down to business! Trim, Tactics and Tenacity made it happen as an extra onshore thermal twist was thrown into the mix.

In race 4 particularly as the land heated the left side of the course developed a thermal sea breeze boosting a shore side advantage for half of the upwind leg. The key was when to get right?

Over the day we saw the southerly pressure range from 180 degrees to 220 degrees, until the last upwind work in race 5 where a 40 degree easterly shift prompted a major left hand course rotation.

All three races employed the U flag during the start sequence and, with the exception of race 3 where 5 UFD's were issued, race 4 and 5 were clear starts.

Congratulations to the race winners of the day:

  • Race 3 and 4 JPN 2987 Megaptera II, Satoshi Kami and Saori Kami
  • Race 5 AUS 2799 A Team, Arron Linton and Jay Whittem

Boat of the day and current regatta leaders:

  • USA2981 Dr Beverly, Jonathan Mckee and Libby Johnson Mckee
