Fast pace to set tone in Bird Island Yacht Race - Papillon will also start as a front runner for the overall win
After so many light weather races over the past 10 months, finally some decent breeze is predicted for this weekend’s Bird Island Race, hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, and looking at the Bureau of Meteorology’s weather models, the pocket rockets of the fleet will be the beneficiaries.

The third race of the CYCA’s Blue Water Pointscore Series (BWPS) looks like it could be a humdinger, with a fresh north-easterly replacing the light variable winds predicted for Friday evening, when the fleet starts at 7.00pm. A light westerly looks likely to hang in until midnight, when the north-easterly sea breeze will strike and increase throughout Saturday, giving the yachts a fast ride to Bird Island.
