Miracle Open Meeting at Redoubt Sailing Club

by Brian Mumford on 18 Jul 2015 20 June 2015

On 20th June the annual Miracle open took place at Redoubt SC. With only 5 boats taking part this year and a forecast for light breeze the first race got underway after a slight delay.

The Miracle Sailed by Tracy Amos & Gemma Gibson showed all a clean pair of heels in the first race and took an easy win with boats behind slowing each other down.

With good starts in the remaining two races Tracy & Gemma continued to excel, the boats behind came close but could not match the consistency of their sailing, the pair won all races on the day to win the Redoubt Miracle open 2015.
