It was an excruciatingly slow start for the first race of the Lead Edge Series today with minimal breeze in Middle Harbour as the starting gun sounded.
Unfortunately the breeze didn’t pick up sending the Race Committee down to Eastern Channel to finish for a very short race.
Kayamai redeemed themselves after starting late due to engine trouble, but finding what little breeze there was on the harbour to
get the gun for 1st place helmed by Peter Winter. Box Cox came in 2nd place on Nine Dragons followed by Garth Riley on Sirius.
Chris Canty was Galaxy III was happy to complete the slow race to come in first place in a field on one to much cheering!. Hoping to provide him a
bit more competition next week.No Friends may not have got a podium position but they get a gold star for being the most picturesque boat on the day.
