F18 Australian Nats 2018: Day 1



No pics available.  Video by creativedroneworx.com shared by Aus F18 Assoc.  - Gavin Colby & Jayden Dalton (Scorpion/Brewin DS boomless) are leading the 2018 Aus F18 Nats being held at Jervoise Bay Sailing Club. Three races completed yesterday with increasing wind conditions. Last one with many capsizes. Colby & Dalton were the most consistent crew , establishing a 10pt gap already with second place.

One of the Windrush Edge that was testing the new jib/snuffer system discarded it at last minute and scored 1, 35, 1...!   James Clark & Max Putnam (Edge / Goodall DS ) are currently in 9th position but their two bullets will play big if they maintain performance when discards enter the scene.

Brett Burvill & Ryan Duffield  (Edge/1D) had a capsize in last race (34th) but also scored a 2nd & a 6th with their new  DS jib/snuffer system , which had some minor teething issues.
More wind expected for today, an early start (10AM) is scheduled.
