Kerikeri High School Interdominion update

Currently the Kerikeri High School Open Sailing Team is in Australia representing New Zealand. One of the sailors has shared an update of the first days of racing:

Hi, so far there has been 2 days of racing however on the first day there was a gale warning and the club has a policy that they are not allowed to let boats race when there’s a gale warning. Instead we learnt a new card game called Cucumber or ‘Ploom’. In the afternoon we went for a walk on the beach. Today we went to briefing at 8:00 but as there were high winds it was postponed. We waited for two hours then the wind dropped so we were able to go sailing. When we went out we found out that there was really high waves, but we stayed out anyway. We were race three against St Joseph’s in purple. We had a good start but then we lost it and we had a 156 (losing combination). At mark three Frankie did an outstanding manoeuvre allowing Jack and Kaya through converting us to a 234 (winning combination) So that makes the first race a win. The next race was race 7 against Marlborough. We had another good start and rounding mark 2 we had a 126 which is winning and we kept that all the way to the finish so that was a good race. Then the wind got too high so we all had to go in. Overall that day was two wins so at the end we got cream buns!! (If we win all our races that day in a regatta we get cream buns. It’s tradition so we have to) Thanks for reading our …blog? Emilie.
