Saturday Racing:

Well into our Saturday points score racing with two races completed in each of the mini-series except the Pulbah which is this Saturday.

Very frustrating conditions for our first Windward-Leeward day last Saturday. Not only for the skippers and crew following the start boat all around the bay as they tried to settle on a course and start line with the weather, read breeze, not settling in until very late in the day.

In the Spring pointscore:

Div 1 Rhumb, Tow Truck and Squid4woodsy are battling it out for the first three places with a comfortable, at this point, lead back to the remainder of the pack.

Div 2 Stampede leads Likatiger and The Real Thing, on equal points, slightly ahead of the next few boats.

Div 3 Pogue Mahone has taken a runaway lead well in front of Echo Beach and Treka

Check out the program. Next, Saturday 17th November, is a week off racing for yachts at LMYC and all are urged to race in the RMYC Toronto 30 Mile race.

Wednesday Racing:

With four out of five races completed in the Summer 1 pointscore, race 1 was abandoned, eXcessive, Willpower and Hijinx are leading div 1 and Young’n’Old, Mirage and Scaramouch marginally ahead of Lucille and Another Promise in 4th & 5th

Friday Twilights

Congratulations to Jayne Sherratt on Liaison on first place in the first race of the lady skipper series.

Friday 23rd November LMYC will be hosting Domestic Violence awareness. We will be asking for boats to take a passenger or two on that night for the Twilight race. All skippers and crew are urged to get involved. Details at the bottom.

LMYC Junior Sailing

Also on the weekend of 17th & 18th November our juniors will be hosting a round of the Sabot States at LMYC. Keep a look out and cheer on our young sailors.

Early in October they competed in the NSW Youth Championships. Congratulations go to Darby Jones who, with four 1st, three 2nd, one 3rd and a 4th took out the championship.

Wind Warriors Trans-Tasman interclub regatta.

Last week LMYC sailors took on the challenge from Clarks beach Yacht Club in New Zealand.

And what a job they did. Congratulations to David Anstey winning the regatta and to the LMYC team who together won the interclub trophy.
