Musket Cove Fiji
Musket Cove Fiji Regatta week 2013
Race course is everything to the left of the yellow start line.  
Short race with very lightwind
Jamie and Lucy of s/v Bamboozle joined for a afternoon of racing in super light wind conditions.  Jamie did a great job trimming the main and calling tactics.

Dave at the helm and Lucy trimming the jib.
 Tacking LightSpeed ohh so close to the reef.
Another shot showing skinny water close to the reef after a less than perfect start in super light wind conditions.  We placed 
 Party aboard LightSpeed with the crew of the winning mono-hull.  LightSpeed 2nd in the multi-hull division.

 Just a few of the activities from yesterday prove we still know how to have fun.

  • Yacht racing.  2nd place. 
  • Hobie 16 sailing.  Kathy and Dave won there first match advancing to the semi finals.  

  • Hairy Chest competition.  Dave was 1st place win by unanimous decision by the panel of 5 judges winning a huge bottle of Bounty rum. 

  • Wet tee shirt contest.  Kathy was a contender, but her modesty of keeping her top 'on' prevented a top showing.
  • Beer drinking competition.  1st place win with team Seattle comprised of crews of LightSpeed and Sophie.
  • Golfing competition.  Kathy took top score wining tons of fabulous prizes.  Usually high scores in golf don't earn top honors, but this is the super fun Musket Cove regatta week.
  • Beach Volleyball tournament

 Early morning at Musket Cove is pretty quiet.
 LightSpeed at the Musket Cove Marina.   A huge thanks to the Royal Suva Yacht Club for sharing their reserved space at the Musket Cove marina dock for Fiji Regatta week.  RSYC Commodore Mark is the best!
