Australia Day Fun Race 2017

Seven boats and their crews dressed the boats with flags and bunting before sailing past the start line in front of the Club pontoon.
The skies looked grey over our Low Isles destination and as we got going the clouds lifted to a fine but overcast day. Lady Mystique rounded the mark first and the sailing conditions were perfect for the return trip.
Then one mile from the finish, the 12 knot breeze suddenly dropped to zero. The four front runners Lady Mystique, Jimmie, J Curve & Lady Jaqualyn  were going round in circles and drifting back towards Low Isles. After about 30 minutes, with no sign of the wind coming in they all raised the iron sail and quit the race to join the festivities back at the Club.
By the time Port FM Mai Oui and Too Easy arrived, the breeze had returned and they sailed on to be the only finishers.
Line honors to Port FM Mai Oui
Best dressed boat - Lady Mystique.
