Bracko @ Festival of Sails

Bracko, sailing Recycled Reputation, with a largely Darwin crew, started the regatta with two seconds, earning them the class lead after race 2. A fourth in race 3 dropped them to a series 2nd, while another 4th in race 4 elevated Recycled Reputation to  series 1st, illustrating the challenges of producing good results.

The class had three series leaders over the five races, but without a discard, every race was important.

In the final race the Recycled Reputation crew could only manage a 9th, which dropped their series score to 21 points and 5th place, while the podium was populated by Moonraker - 1st, Flying Circus - 2nd and Skipjack - 3rd.

Next year's Festival of Sails will be the 150th anniversary and starts on January 20th.
