Change of lead in twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THERE were changes at the lead of last Wed­nes­day’s Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club (WSC) twi­light race, where an eight-knot northerly breeze made for beau­ti­ful sail­ing con­di­tions.

Quick­skips, skip­pered by Pete Mil­lar, en­joyed a very good start, to lead all the way ahead of Sirocco, helmed by Mar­cus Arthur, in Di­vi­sion 1.

Twister (Kevin Fog­a­rty), was slightly early in the run for the start line in Di­vi­sion 2 and was forced across it by Tulip (Bernie van’t Hof).

Tulip then had the best start and led the fleet all the way around for a line hon­ours win.

On cor­rected time how­ever, it was Queens­land Ma­rine Ser­vices (John Gal­loway), who won first place, ahead of Bobby D (Ross Win­ter­bourn).

Twister even­tu­ally made up time and came in at third place.

Kameruka (Mark and Bob Beale), had the best start in Di­vi­sion 3 and sailed very well to cross the line 13 sec­onds ahead of Break­away (Rob Davis).

Usual race leader Lorna Rose Too (Pete Mitchel­son), had head­sail furler trou­ble at the start of the race and lost valu­able time.

The even­tual win­ner on cor­rected time was Rossgo (John Grif­fin), ahead of De­fi­ance (Mark Thomp­son), with Kameruka, in third place over­all.
