Miramar Kossman Regatta 2016
With great westerly wind blowing steady at 15 m/h and great courses that presented all kind of challenges it was supposed to be a great regatta. But it was so hot that some racers completed third course in the semiconscious conditions. Also, committee boat had its anchor line wrapped around the prop shaft, as a result the starting line was too wide and set parallel to the line of wind instead of wind facing; so starting was difficult.
Certain events during the race raised concerns about safety again. The discussion about "barging" give way before and after the start will continue between members of the Race Committee to determine better set of rules for Miramar racers.
Nasim Shamailov (SILVERSURFER-620) won the regatta finishing first in two out of three races, and second in the third race. Followed by Andrew Shabalin (UFORIA-1074). Third place taken by Ruchard Lubell (SPLASH-1598)
