Black flag day at Etchells Australian Nats

The Australian Etchells fleet continued their challenging championship at the Royal Perth YC with the black flag culling the leaders. Black flag disqualifications were handed to Torvar Mirsky, John Bertrand, Skip Lissiman and Marino Evangelisti. Plus Mark Thornburrow continued after being advised of his black flag infringement, requested redress and was subsequently scored DNE.

One good bit of news was the successful recovery of Ray Smith’s St John’s Dance, which sank during yesterday’s second race. Damage to the yacht is minor, but Smith has been permitted by the race committee to sail substitute hull for the remainder of the regatta.
