10/10 Jervis Bay Regatta

October 06th, 2015

Ten Wetas turned out for the Jervis Bay Regatta over the holiday weekend and were blessed with mostly warm sunny conditions most of the weekend.

Unlike last year when we had 25 knots, this year the wind was from every direction but generally 10-15 knots on day one and 5 knots on day two - which made Peter Graham's win even more impressive as it was so easy to sail into a hole while the rest of the fleet went past you. Peter was OCS in the last race and was tied with second place Rohan Armstrong but won on countback with Andy Weis coming third.

It was suggested that as Peter's boat still doesn't have a name he should call it "Winalot" since that what he keeps doing!

Paul White managed to "repair" his Tasar broadside from the week before in time but turned up with a boat in multiple shades of primer - and then proceeded to try to remove this by collecting instead of rounding the marks on day one.

Not to be outdone, Geoff Waldon left his boat on the beach while collecting his trolley at the end of the regatta - only to see it sail away on its own with Geoff trying to swim after it! - a rescue boat quickly recovered boat and exhausted owner.
