State Masters in Jindabyne

While most DBSC members took the weekend off from sailing due to Sydney’s high winds and torrential rain, six of our comrades drove into the Snowy Mountains to compete in the State Masters at Jindabyne Sailing Club. The weather was more cooperative than in Sydney and the setting was very picturesque. Excellent hospitality and a real community spirit greeted the 66 sailors who competed at Jindabyne. After a warm-up twilight session on Friday evening, the regatta began in earnest on Saturday when three races were held in 6-15 knot winds. The breeze was challenging, shifting up to 45 degrees at times. Only one race was completed on Sunday after the easterly breeze died, and the rain set in.
