South Island Cup Round 1 report from Paul Vliestra

S.I. Cup Round 1 in Chch, Saturday 24th, 5 races for the Open Men and 5 races for the Open Women and Juniors together. Racing on the estuary, was fun with Chris Dimock and Terry Beentjies having some tight racing, My mast broke just before the 1st race so had to use my 6.3m instead of my 7.0m but was great fun and tiring after 5 races of pumping like crazy. Annie Crombie used a 7.2m sail all day and Tom McGregor a 7.8m everyone else was on 7.0's or less. Barbara Preston-Vlietstra loved her first days racing and completed all 5 races with some exciting tussles between her, Rachel and Jo, Jostling for 2nd or third place in their heats.
Paul.
