Sailors enjoy first race at Sussex Inlet

Jervis Bay: The first Sussex Inlet Basin Yacht Club’s race for 2022 still had Covid protocols still in place and for the first time in a while the forecast looked favourable for some good sailing conditions.

Unfortunately, the wind did not get that memo and was fickle to say the least, but more on that later.

Five boats ventured out to blow away the new year cobwebs, for an inside course handicap start.

With Phil and Greg on committee boat duties, it was HooRoo (Andy and Lou) first away into a lighter than forecast NW breeze.

It would be a slow one tack work to the first mark, with Salty Tiger (Coxy and Darren) off second, closely followed by Time Out (Scotty and Tetley), then a bit further back Fly Navy Too (Greg and Ronda) and last boat to start was Southern cross (Greg and two Lynnes).
