On Sunday 23 February we held the Wickliffe Bay race. Eight yachts entered. It started out with a flukey north east breeze at times from Carey’s Bay down to the Heads where by the time most of the fleet arrived, the influence of an incoming tide locked everyone into a battle to break free of the entrance. Various strategies to avoid the main tidal current were employed with five yachts managing to head down the coast but only four made it to the turning mark at Wickliffe Bay due to a lack of viable wind. In the end only two yachts completed the course. Keeler division winner ‘Maraquita’ (Jamie Todd) and Trailer Yacht division winner Dawnbreaker (Owen Cambridge). Both ‘Teneke’ & ´Casino’ on their return were involved in the rescue and tow of a cabin cruiser with engine problems from outside the Heads back to Deborah Bay.
