Spinnaker start likely for Audi Sydney Gold Coast

Skippers and crew attending tonight’s Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race briefing will be advised the windiest part of the entire 384 nautical mile race could be on Sydney Harbour this Saturday when a 10-15 knot south westerly breeze is likely to produce a colourful spinnaker start.

‘The fleet can expect a southerly push on Saturday which is expected to ease into Sunday with winds likely to swing to nor’easterly sea breezes on Sunday afternoon, particularly off the mid north NSW coast,’ said meteorologist Julie Evans today.
