49err Team Pink Peacock - National Ranking 49err Team Pink Peacock - National Ranking

The First national ranking event was held in Weymouth on the 18th & 19th September, kicking off the winter season for the 49ers. The race committee set a course out in the bay, and 10 boats left the shore in light breeze. The racing was very good, with all the top boats racing around close together. Team Pink Peacock put in a solid consistent performance, scoring 2,2,2 on day one, not surprisingly leaving them second overnight. Day two brought similar conditions, but this time racing in the harbour.The team had another good day, scoring 2,4,1. After discarding the 4th, Pink & Peacock finished 2nd overall.

The Second national ranking event was quite the contrast from the first, with a strong easterly breeze. The first day was in the Harbour, as the race committee thought the waves might be a bit big in the bay. Pink Peacock started another strong regatta, with a score line of 2,4,1, placing them in the lead overnight. The second day the committee decided to send us out to the bay, thinking the conditions would be better today. However, the wind didnt seem much different, and the waves were still big, making for some challenging races for the fleet. Many teams struggled with the tricky conditions, including us, as we went for a swim on more than one occasion! Due to some technical difficulties, we scored a 5th in the first race. The second race started well, and we held on to the lead all the way round, until the last run, where we gybed a bit late for the finish line and were overtaken by Draper and Greenhalgh, which meant we finished equal on points but they won on count back.

Overall a good couple of weekends, we are now looking forward to some training and then our next big event down under in Perth..
