Figjam first in wild weather
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.
