The weather Gods were again watching over the Wags fleet providing us with a gentle breeze and a rain free afternoon. “It was much better out in the bay than in here” was the talk in the bar at presentation as Brisbane turned on a standard hot and sticky day for this time of the year.

All-though the course used was the same as last week, the results were way different. The breeze this week was very soft allowing the smaller boats in the fleet to make the most of the flat conditions and a chance to not get thrown from wave-to-wave. From the start boat it was a beat to Lockyer Light with the breeze coming from SE.  It was then expected to go around to the E making for a further beat all the way out to Hope Banks RM. However this didn’t happen and at best went only slightly left to ESE and took the pressure off the crew with next to no work to do for the rest of the course. A port turn at Hope and back toward the red at Green Island and on to the western cardinal was nearly a dead run before another port turn at the cardinal made the final leg a broad reach in a fading breeze. Albeit a slow and testing day, it was still a great sail. Well done to all.
