Season Opening Day 2016/17 "STARKEY CUP October 8th

After a wet and abandoned opening on October 1st Our Re-run  of the Starkey Cup today was about perfect for our fleet of 10 boats including 1 "Visitor"

5 to 10kts West backing to our usual South East Sea breeze up the river made for a very pleasant afternoon of Sailing

Our "Starkey Cup" is in Memory of Bob Starkey who was a founding Member of our Club back in 2004

The race is also counted as Race 1 of our Handicap Series for A & B Div yachts

RULE # 1 of our Club Sailing Rules "The Starboard Call"

It is not very wise it IGNORE a call of"Starboard" from a 1.5 Cl Yacht when trying to bluff your way through with a 600mm yacht (hoping to get away with it)? In this case the 1.5 (who had right of way) While trying to avoid running over the little fella lost about 6 boat lengths at the start through no fault of his own?
