The OD League/Golden Sail series got off to a fine start with Aphrodite, Larus, Miss Fire & Senata on the start line for 2 races in medium/light wind on Saturday. No sign of the forecast strong conditions. Gypsy rued bailing out early & giving the crew the afternoon off. Peter Hayes stood in for his brother Kevin (suffering an injury from the Kinsale racing) on Miss Fire, leaving Aphrodite double handed. Sonata won the day with superior tactics & boat handling. The ferry/RC support boat was on the water for the first time to support the Dragons. We’re off to a good start.
