Drifting Away at Vaucluse Regatta

Sadly, the Vaucluse Regatta was a non-starter due to a highly unseasonal absence of raceable breeze, with the wind ranging from 0-5 knots and changing direction from SE to NE during the course of the afternoon!A large fleet of DBSC boats headed up the harbour for the event, partly under sail and partly under tow offered by Pat Levy in the new Paul Adam.  However, after some solid drift practice, they were forced to return, again partly under sail and partly under tow!But all was not lost. Just as people finished their showers, a puff of breeze appeared and the SailGP fleet were out in force for a practice session, foiling up and down the harbour.  A bunch of DBSC sailors headed out to watch them up close and personal – including a cheery wave from Tom Slingsby as he flew past for team Australia.
