Vice Commodores Cup 2016

The day started rather early for some of us, leaving the marina at 07h30 and rushing to get to the holding jetty before being caught in the river on a falling tide. Unfortunately Zeus could not leave the marina as he woke to flat batteries. This was a great pity as, not only would we have had eight boats racing, but I was really looking forward to them experiencing the perfect days sailing that was forecast for St Helena Bay.

Ewald was out on the bay with us and assisted by laying the mark off Doctor’s reef and remaining on station until the last boat had passed that mark. He then collected  that mark and one of the start marks and took them back to the marina as he had another engagement. Thank you Ewald for assisting us, really appreciated.

At 09h00 seven boats started the first race from the break water past Doctor’s reef and down into Slippers bay to finish off that break water. Frank and Patrick sailed very well and pulled out a fair lead on the rest of us. As if that was not enough, the wind died for about an hour and a half after they finished, leaving the rest of us to decide whether to motor in or not. Anything forward of the beam is a no – no for George on Evensong, then to have the wind die, that left him no choice but to motor in to Slippers Bay. When Alan on Sand Piper saw that he was getting nowhere he also decided to motor in. This left John on Reflexion too close to the finish line not to keep sailing and the determination of Michael on Wagis and Peter on Ancient Mariner kept them hanging in there. Their determination paid off  and a light following breeze brought them up to the finish line. We were all on anchor in Slippers Bay when we heard on the radio that Chris on Moya had run aground in the river. It would have been great to have them join us for lunch. This was not to be. Ted on Bojangles tried to pull him off but it was decided to leave him until the tide rose again. Ted then joined us in Slippers Bay for lunch.

After lunch the wind swung to the west and using Evensong as the one end of the start line, the rest of us set sail for a buoy that we hoped was in Sandy point harbour. Barato and Reflexion got off to good starts and we were watching Sea Mist disappear behind us. “This time we have him.” Frank stopped, reversed, pulled in his sails again, and in the end, he rounded the mark first! Later we found out that he had had kelp on his keel. Barato rounded second followed by Reflexion, Sand Piper, Wagis and Ancient Mariner. Unfortunately, Evensong had to retire as sailing to weather is just impossible for that design of catamaran. However that only happened after 2 hours of trying. The wind freshened on the way home and great downwind sailing was experienced by all. There were 10 boats out on the bay on Sunday afternoon of which nine were members of POYC.
