Day 1 was a spectacular and beautiful day with light winds . I was invited on Ngatira for the day along with two other WBF ers and we had great fun.
As the old saw goes about yacht racing, those who make the least mistakes win and yesterday we led a charmed race. Even after losing the countdown we managed to start and cross about 3rd in the fleet . Throughout the day in shifty conditions and wind ranging from 5 to maybe 12 knots for a while we made good calls and ended up finishing second Gaff rig to the big Thelma ( the save a classic boat from a few years ago) and ahead of Rainbow and Waitangi.
Great day , photos later.
