Blustery race in prospect with forecast 5/6.  Heavy weight kite up just after the start and a quick hour half blast to the forts when forced to down the kite due to a shattered spinnaker shackle, perhaps we should have been using the heavy weight sheets.  Missing kite not much of a disadvantage to the Nab, held up by Whistler on rounding for some reason and then the fun began.  Not too bad a beat back to the Forts but then the wind picked up and the reefs went in .  Very blustery with two nasty squalls and maximum gusts up to 48knts.  A number of boats finishing with headsails only and a few retirements due to damage.  Conditions changed multiple times with reefs going in and out, some damage to the mail sail but not to disappointed with result as survival was probably more important.
