Over the weekend of October 29th and 30th 2005 the first West Australian S&S34 Class Racing for several years was conducted. The weekend brought unusual weather for October. The normal morning Southeasterly followed by the afternoon Fremantle Doctor blowing from the Southwest was replaced by West Northwesterlies.
The second Race of the Trade-A-Boat S&S34 Series was run in a fresh 20+knot northerly on the 23rd.
[05/10/05] We are finally underway. Currently in Yamba NSW waiting for the weather to settle down.
We finally got the S&S34 Series up and running. It’s a Series within Sandringham’s usual Sunday morning races every second Sunday. The first race on October 9 was touch and go as to whether it would be held as a stiff breeze of 25-30knots was up and a gale warning was imminent.
The West Australian weather on Sunday morning 9th October 2005 was squally with showers. The FSC open day racing was cancelled. Somehow, by the 2:45pm the weather moderated and the sun popped out from behind the clouds creating a perfect setting for the launch of Constellation.
