DBSC Sprints

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, 20+ boats saw some extremely tight sprint racing, in a shifty 8-12 knot South Easterly. The course was laid bang in the middle of ‘The Dardanelles’ (aka the passage between Point Piper and Shark Island) to make the most of the constant pressure coming out of Rose Bay. There was quite a lot of Big Boat traffic on the harbour, which kept the laser racers alert and on their toes. Check out the close call on ‘The Top Mark’.Speaking of top Marks… the Standard rig sailors had the pleasure of being schooled by Mark Bethwaite another week in these conditions, while the Radial sailors escaped at least another week before Mark dominates their fleet…Thanks to this week’s race volunteers — Nick Pellow (PRO), Josh Kirton (COTD), and Daryl Lawrence and James Tudball in the canteen.
