Gilbert’s Autumn Worlds Report

This year saw an increase in the series to six races following the cancellation of the Barnes Bay Regatta. We also introduced a three handed spinnaker division for yachts over 36 feet.

The weather for the series was a continuation of the poor sailing breezes we experienced over the summer season.

With record entries the series had great racing which was a tribute to the competing yachties given that breezes were often gusty.

With six races scheduled, one cancelled through bad weather; there were five races with one drop for the series.

The series results were:

Division 1 Spinnaker

1st            Saga                         Chris Sheehan and Troy Grafton (on CB)
