The 2009 Masters games is all over
The Royal Geelong Yacht club put on an exciting week of racing and socialising .
The invitation Race on Sunday afternoon produced 5 to 10 knots winds that were swinging all over the place which made it hard to pick the right side of the course at the top mark. Some interesting decisions were made,I managed to weave my way through the course to be the first mosquito over the line
On Monday the wind was up and blowing 20knots and gusting to 25knots and every one was being blown around waiting for the start.I managed to capsize at the start and saw every one disappear up the course by the time I righted my boat.
so off I went after them,on the first lap and second lap I managed to make up ground Going down wind on the last lap I noticed a wind change and went to the port side of the course and managed to make up same ground. Garry was in the lead but when he saw me the shock
of it all caused him to capsize and said a few words !!!!!! I managed to be the first mosquito over the line. :)The second race was abandoned because the wind was up to 30knots.
On Tuesday the wind was up to 20knots and gusty ,Garry raced very well in the conditions and saw him take line honours in the three races.
Thursday It was looking like a light day out on the water
Race 5 started with me on port and all the other boats on starboard before anyone had noticed
Race 6 light winds and more congested on the port tack ,John was keeping me away from the start by following me all over the place
Race 7 Very very light winds by now ,just keeping the boat moving.
Race 8 saw Garry on 11 Peter on 12 and Chris Parker 13 points,
so it was all up for grabs and saw a very exciting race. With Chris first, Peter second, and Garry third all finishing on 14 points
The over all results in multi hulls was Chris first, Garry Second and Peter third.
Results age 55 to 65 Peter first, Garry second and Ian Champion third
