RPNYC Sailing Spring Series Race 2


1 - Perfect sailing weather for the final day of the RPNYC's Spring Series. The start was close, with a bunch of yachts clustered at the starboard end of the line


2 - Nedax Racing pulled the old 'tack on to port and dip' trick


3 - The Bluebridge ferry steamed across the fleet as they went up the first beat...


4 - ...which probably didn't help the boats using the right side of the course...


5


6 - President's Division start


7 - The race was close throughout, here the Farr MRX Bayleys rolls over One Red Dog courtesy of  a slight spinnaker issue...


8 - The two Thompson 30s (Drinks Trolley and Nedax Racing)


9 - ...a bottom mark misadventure for Nedax Racing, but they recovered well...


10 - ...and a close finish for 2nd (after Andiamo) on the line, with Drinks Trolley leading Flying Boat...


11 - ...with The Guarantee only 1 second further back. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th on the line were only 19 seconds apart after an hour of racing. Not too bad...


12 - Bayleys won on divisional handicap, with Andiamo 6s behind, and Flying Circus 3rd. Race and series results are here.
