Over 100 sailors at twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

MORE than 100 sailors joined in last Wed­nes­day’s Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club twi­light race, which was held in a 10-knot east­erly breeze.

Spirit (John Cad­wal­lader), was early across the line in the mul­ti­hull di­vi­sion and had to restart.

This gave Quick­skips (Peter Mil­lar) the best start of the fleet but Spirit quickly caught up to win line hon­ours.

None­the­less, the restart hurt Spirit on cor­rected time, crown­ing Quick­skips as the win­ner by one sec­ond in front of Over­drive (Ru­pert King) and with Sirocco (Mar­cus Arthur), a fur­ther 45 sec­onds be­hind.

Trea­sure VIII (Clay Bau­man), en­joyed the best start in Di­vi­sion 2, how­ever Tulip (Bernie van’t Hof) and Reig­ni­tion (Charles Wal­lis), pow­ered up and were the first two boats around the first mark.

Tulip was the win­ner on line hon­ours but on cor­rected time Trea­sure VIII won the race from Huahine (Nick Smail) and Cross­bow (David Lund) in third place.

De­fi­ance (Ed Saalfeld) en­joyed the best start in Di­vi­sion 3 just ahead of Kameruka (Mark and Bob Beale).

Kameruka was first over the fin­ish line and just ahead of De­fi­ance and Syn­chronic­ity (Tom Parker) on cor­rected time.

Cara (Ja­son Framey) sailed very well with many of the crew from Another Fi­asco aboard, en­joy­ing a good bat­tle around the course with Riff Raff (Dan White).
