Since we were not racing, we did not chase the Hamilton Island Race Week fleets. After visiting with Peter and Laurence we headed for White Bay (Waite Bay on the new charts) to try out our new Canon underwater housing.
Enroute we found the Race Week IRC Grand Prix and Performance Racing class starts had been moved to the eastern starting area (right on our rhumb line to White Bay). So to stay clear of the pre-start maneuvers we diverted north to just ooch past Craig Point.
The superyacht KOKOMO had a similar idea — surprisingly they were able to pass us approaching the starting area.
