Race Day 1: National Opti Champs Yawed By 0 Knot Wind

Posted by on Apr 21, 2011 | 1 Comment

Devonport is lucky to have the  untrammeled tranquility of Cheltenham Beach. It is even luckier to have the wonderful Wakatere Boating Club based down the road at Narrow Neck Beach, which provides us with the opportunity to see some spectacular sailing events.

This weekend will be no exception, with the Club hosting the 2011 NZIODA Optimist National Champs, and The Speculator will be reporting on the event over the weekend.

Day 1 has however, got off to a very quiet start, with a complete lack of wind. Nevertheless, the wind is forecast to pick up over the weekend.

The Speculator wandered among the ranks of the becalmed, and snapped a few shots.
