Light winds in twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

LIGHT breeze made last Wed­nes­day’s twi­light race slower than usual.

Spirit, sailed by Ja­son Gard, re­turned to play in the race and man­aged to get ahead of Rum Raider, Scott Mil­lar, for a com­fort­able win on line hon­ours and cor­rected time in Di­vi­sion 1.

Af­ter a tightly bunched start, Tulip, Bernie van’t Hof, used the light weather to his ad­van­tage and was a clear line hon­ours win­ner in Di­vi­sion 2.

Trea­sure VIII, Harold Menelaus, and Queens­land Marine Ser­vices, John Gal­loway came in be­hind.

On cor­rected time, Tulip was first, with Queens­land Marine Ser­vices and Sand­piper, Chris Chen­gody, in sec­ond and third.

Lorna Rose Too, Pete Mitchel­son, sailed very well in Di­vi­sion 3 to take line hon­ours.

On cor­rected time how­ever, De­fi­ance, Mark Thomp­son, man­aged to take the win with Lorna Rose Too sec­ond and Bluenose, Henry Kelder, in third place.

Any­one want­ing to take part in twi­light sail­ing is en­cour­aged to ex­press their in­ter­est on the crew avail­able page on the sail­ing club’s web­site.
