Thanks to the four Sandspit/Mangawhai Electron sailors who came down to support getting an Electron fleet established at Gulf Harbour.
There were six boats on the start line and skippers enjoyed some close racing during the morning on Regency Lake Gulf Harbour Challenging conditions for Electrons both on the wind and running, especially as the boats were gettingout of control on the running legs by either nosediving, chinese gybing or just rounding up with the strong S/W gusts.
After several practice races there were five races recorded with 4 different winners.
We are planning to sail again in a fortnights time on Wed 22 November 10.00 an till 12.00 noon.
