Waka Racing Report from Day One of the Warren Jones Regatta

by Garth Ellingham

Day 1 was a hard one here in Perth. The Doctor was in with vengeance early on in the day and it didn’t let off. Starting the day with full sails we ended up with reefed mains and no2 jibs whilst it was blowing 25-30kts. Exciting stuff for the team and some hairy situations but we managed to come out on top in all.

A clean sweep today for us putting 6 wins on the board. It wasn’t all plain sailing as we came from behind in one, due to exceptional crew work, and slogged it out in a few others. A fantastic day for the team but more is to come as we iron out the creases to hit full form.

From the Waka Boys + one girl!
