M2G - passage race to Geelong
16 September 2010 | Port Philip Bay
Graf Spee making her way to Geelong in the Melbourne to Geelong race last weekend.
We had two crew join us, Patricia L and Natalie S from RBYC. Patricia is a very experienced 'yachtie' who really got the best out of Graf Spee.
The photo is taken by Steb Fisher the 'official' picture man for the ORCV - and he has taken some great shots of us in action - not the sort of photos you get without sitting in a dingy watching the action pass you by!
We managed a respectable 3rd in our division which is great given it is our first real race and we managed it with a No 3 jib in 10 knots of wind - and yes we are thinking gennaker.
more photos to come!
