This weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club Open Regatta showcased a great crowd of spectators and sailors with smooth sailing weather. Spectators turned out in force again as the water front to the villa in the Twice Bitten region was crowded as well as the spectator pier and committee boat dock in the Woodfall region. The regions of Bingo Strait responded in kind with smooth sailing weather as the only DNF (Did Not Finish) on the day was due to the scripts in Nico’s Bandit 50 ceasing to function.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on BBYC Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of majority of five Bandit 25Rs. Three Bandit IFs, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, one TMS Nacra 17, and one Quest Melges-24 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the BBYC Lighthouse Race course, was comprised of two TMS One Design 65s, one TMS Volvo Open 70, one TMS Ushuaia, one Bandit 50R, and one Wildwind AC-45.

Calm sailing region weather and a nice fleet turnout featured during this weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club Cat Fight. The regions of Bingo Strait behaved well, giving us calm sailing weather as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was a result of a skipper crashing. Daenerys’s Flying Shadow zoomed off to the east, past the yellow mark in the Muta region, as she disconnected from a crash resulting in the scripts in her catamaran throwing errors on her return and a DNF. The other two DNFs on the day, both accredited to Riz, were due to incorrect courses loaded into his Ultimate Sailor Buddy HUD (USB) resulting in him pulling his boat in both races. This weeks fleet, racing on BBYC Olympic Course (Long) and the BBYC W1 course, was comprised entirely of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in race one, with Riz opting to switch out his Flying Shadow for his TMS Nacra 17, in race two.
