Fig­jam first in wild weather

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport - Bren­ton Air

Au­gusta Yacht Club’s round 4 Stocker Pre­ston Club Cham­pi­onship fol­lowed un­sea­sonal weather last week­end with strong winds and lots of rain.

On Sun­day morn­ing, the rain dis­ap­peared but the strong winds were still blow­ing.

Most of the wind was from the east and vice-com­modore Mal Buzza ad­justed the course ac­cord­ingly.

Con­di­tions were ideal for the cata­ma­rans and Buzz Box soon set­tled down to take the lead, with no sur­prises when he was first to cross the line for the cats. The mono­hulls, be­ing heav­ier boats, found the course more of a chal­lenge and the light winds dur­ing the race saw the lead change hands sev­eral times.

The even­tual win­ner was Fig­jam with Beez Neez a game se­cond.
