Following the abandonment of racing on May 12 due to strong winds, last Saturday May 26 was the first of the Winter Sprints series.
Ten boats enjoyed the light breezes and sunny conditions with RO Steve Tucker and the MHYC Race Management Team running two windward-leeward races between Middle Head and Spring Cove.
Handicapping was a challenge with the single division including a wide range of yachts from J24 to MC38. The Melges 20s and Adams 10s also enjoyed some good one-design racing within the mixed fleet.
Jack Stening’s Sydney 36 Stormaway claimed two race wins to lead the Sprint Series. Best of the Adams 10s was Geoff Charters’ No Friends. In the Melges 20s, Onya steered by Catherine Rofe led to the line in the first race and Evan Hodge claimed the second race with Numero Uno.
