Combined Winter Series Race 5

Saturday 3 June was race five of the Combined Winter Series hosted by RANSA, SASC and RSYS. Unlike like recent weeks, Sydney Harbour displayed some more typical winter weather conditions for racing. Strong and cold South/South-West winds put a sting in the air, yet also provided solid wind strengths which we haven’t had for a while. Despite the weather, 87 boats competed on Saturday, fostering competitive racing for all divisions. This was particularly evident in division 2, where Purple Patch, Plan A and Campeador all finished within 25 seconds of each other.
