Well it sure was an interesting day @ The Duck today, with winds across most of Tas in excess of 50 knots & temperatures above 26 deg it made for some interesting sailing.
Both Gerald & Geoff ended on 13 points after 2 drops but on countback Geoff had the highest number of 1st places.
So results were
Geoff 1st on 13
Gerald 2nd on 13
Don 3rd on 19
SS Riggo with Justin at the helm just surviving a gust
The 7 hardy DF65 skippers that fronted for today’s racing all opted to remove their A+ rigs and instead run with the standard A rigs instead.
“Colarado Cool-Aid” is under there somewhere
RonB started with a B rig but later upgraded to an A while Gerald started with an A then downgraded to a brand new B for the last couple of races.
A total of 9 races were sailed but there were a couple of drop outs in the last 3 as the winds increased.
Today’s pics & video are courtesy of Kermit who alternated between sailing duties & camera work by co opting Justin to share the sailing of #82.
Gerald streaking to the lead (as he does)
With Kermit placing 5th overall thanks to Justin’s efforts it is unlikely that the mighty frog will allow Justin anywhere near his #82 in the future. As we all know Kermit highly covets the rear end of the fleet and to finish anywhere else is just not on.
Don & Graeme finding the going a little tough
Thanks to Sue from all the skippers for once again doing a fine job as PRO/Scorekeeper
More pics from Kermit today can be found here
Here are three of Kermit’s videos from today’s event.

Grahame was another speed demon nothin stops this kid from his objective as was shown in the video “awesome” Although slightly windy the sun was shining humour was abound and ohhhhh’ s were heard as far away as Richmond…. Cruise ship passengers by the buss load were in awe of the sailing as many remarked on their tour of the puddle duck winery and we were in awe of the chicky babes from that ship as well ……..well some of us were but none of them could match our score keeper SUE
