Yachts mix it up on the lake

November 19, 2020 BY

SATURDAY saw a fine day for Ballarat Yacht Club racing, with a great turnout of boats and moderate winds running from 14kph gusting to 20kph, coming in from the west later on from the west-north west.

The lighter winds test the capability of all sailors especially when the odd gusts come, and you don’t read the water ahead.

The seniors had a good tussle, while the juniors shared the spoils. Great to see Jacobi Dunn back on the water partnering with Ryan Harbour after sustaining a broken forearm, and it was a good tussle between the Coelho and Bellette brothers.
