Regatta 22-23 June 2013
were very lucky that the forecast rain didn't materialise and there was
good sailing. On Saturday the 12 to 24 mph WSW wind was
shifty and gusty making for challenging sailing; there seemed to
be many 180 degree tacks. On Sunday there was a bit less wind, 10
to 20 mph, from the West and it was much less shifty so easier sailing
but there were still capsizes.
Saturday was also a SigneT Open Meeting concurrent with the regatta
races. Races A01-A03 includes those SigneTs whose helm
aren't AQSC members; races 01-03 only include AQSC helm..
The best 2 PH results of races 02, 03 and 04
count for the Regatta Trophy;

was the only lady helm so wins the Ladies Trophy; she did very well
helming in the conditions. There were no Novice entries.
The President’s Novelty Event F05 tested patrol boat driving skills
around a slalom course including reversing over the finish line;
