10 Sharks made for a strong showing for this first race. That high number of boats allowed for every Shark team to have someone of their level to compete against for this one design fleet.The Shark fleet can race against themselves and also the PHRF 3 fleet as a whole. A race within a race so to speak.
Nuisance took the gun in PHRF 3, followed by Sudden Impulse and Yin & Yang. It was great to see Toy Yot take 4th, a great performance. Ambitious took 5th. Isurus is really upping their game and took 6th, trading positions with Ambitious frequently during the race. Kaos took 7th despite sailing shorthanded and with white sails only. The first Tanzer 22 across the line was Goin' Strait. Given the Shark advantage in high wind Goin' Strait had a great race beating a good number of Sharks and the highly competitive Tanzer 22 Encore Une Fois. 13 teams competed in PHRF 3.
Vivace took the Etchells race. Bay Gull took PHRF 1 & 2.
In the white sail class the J100 Amalia took the gun, followed by the J30 Breakaway. 2 Mirage 24s followed with Chinook edging out Ariel for a good race. 8 boats competed in White Sail.
This race was an excellent start to the season.
