Tur­bu­lent twi­light

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

GUSTY 20-knot winds greeted the 13 boats com­pet­ing in last Wed­nes­day’s Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club twi­light race.

Queens­land Marine Ser­vices, skip­pered by John Gal­loway, won the best start in Di­vi­sion 2, but it was not long be

fore Tulip (Bernie van’t Hof), snuck ahead to lead the fleet around the first mark.

Trea­sure VIII, with Harold Menelaus at the helm, chased Tulip around the course to cross the line in sec­ond place. On cor­rected time,

Huahine, skip­pered by Nick Smail, won the race by 19 sec­onds, with Wob­bly Boot (Craig Pic

cinelli) and Queens­land Marine Ser­vices just 38 sec­onds be­hind.

Es­o­teric (Col Forster), was un­lucky to miss out on the plac­ings, be­ing 15 sec­onds be­hind on cor­rected time.

In Di­vi­sion 3, the strong wind suited the heav­ier boats with Lor

na Rose Too (Pete Mitchel­son) and Syn

chronic­ity (Tom Parker), go­ing around the course in the two top po­si­tions. How­ever Bob, sailed by Josh Lep­pard, com­peted well to win on cor­rected time, ahead of

De­fi­ance (Mark Thomp­son), in sec­ond place and Syn­chronic­ity in third.
