2021 RVYC Fleet Champs - Report

A mixed bag of conditions had the RC hopping this weekend at the RVYC Fleet Championships regatta (Sept 18 & 19), but we managed to complete 5 and 1/2 races (one race on Sat was abandoned due to a freighter unhelpfully deciding to anchor directly in the middle of our upwind leg.)
Saturday saw a shifty, puffy southerly. Sunday was an equally shifty, but weaker easterly with a bit of rain scattered in both days. The conditions put a real premium on heads out of the boat sailing - watching where the new breeze would fill in and staying on the lifted tack. The longer courses (compared to the shorted Wed night races) meant boat speed was relatively more important than starts and mark roundings. 
The last event of the season for Fleet 1 is coming up this Sunday, KYC Lawrence cup. See you out there!
