13 entries and yet another awesome regatta at Witbank Yacht Club


Saturday got off to a busy start for all the boats, some only arriving that morning and others having a slow start after the previous late night! The wind was no enticement to get out there with just 3 - 5 knots that was switchy and unreliable. After 2 races, one being abandoned, and the promise of good winds on Sunday the fleet headed for shore.


Although racing the following day was scheduled to start at 09h00, and there was no lack of wind, the Race Officer saw the difficulty boats had in getting off the jetty and delayed the first race by 15 minutes. And then the fun began!
