What a weekend of sailing! Tasar sailors from all around Victoria with also a boat from Canberra and a boat from Albury, NSW came together at Western Port Yacht Club, Balnarring, for a super Tasar Victorian Championships.
The forecast was for high twenty and low 30 degrees and light winds, but luckily the forecasters got it slightly wrong. The temperatures were correct, but we managed to get a good mix of wind to make sure everyone had "their" conditions.
The first day was sailed in a predominately easterly breeze with the first race in about 8 knots, but heat 2 and 3 in mid teens. The Doppio boys have had a successful year sailing with Peter Hackett skippering and Chris Dance crewing, but decided to swap for this regatta. This new arrangement saw them with two firsts and a third to take the first day of the regatta by the scruff of the neck.
