2013 Kembla Klassic

4 races held, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday, best 3 of 4 to count.

A good rollup of 11 MG14s on Saturday, plus a 420 competing with the MGs in

Division 2.

Saturday morning was a rather shifty and variable S-SE wind of about 15-20

knots, thankfully a bit less than was forecast earlier in the week, which

delivered some good exciting sailing, especially with constant "interactions"

with Sharpies, 505s, and a mass of catarmarans all sailing different angles at

different speeds . Conditions for the afternoon were similar at the start but

lightened off a bit during the race. JUST ADD WATER (Ian and Yvette Heritage)

were first over line in both, by an amazing 10 minute margin in the afternoon

race. Behind the leader, there was some close sailing, intense personal battles

and many changes of positions in the rest of the fleet.

Sunday was always going to be light, and it was, around 4-8 knots in both races.

A few of Saturday's fleet could not stay, and a reduced fleet of 7 MGs fronted

the starter. A change of crew for JUST ADD WATER didn't stop another 2 scratch

wins, the first over a shortened course and over the full course in the second.

While the conditions were not exciting, nevertheless the racing was, again with

lots of interaction with the other fleets and many positional changes.

No matter how I assigned handicaps, after leading the fleet home by 2, 3, 6 and

10 minute margins, nothing could prevent JUST ADD WATER from also deservedly

winning the TT handicap event, just ahead of WIZARD OF OZ (Rob and Sian Morton

making a welcome return to Association racing).

 

Next TT heat is the Australian Championships.
