Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

IT WAS an­other ses­sion of close rac­ing in last Wed­nes­day’s Ray White Twi­light Race, which is run weekly by the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.

Queens­land Ma­rine Ser­vices skip­pered by John Galloway, led the start in Di­vi­sion 2, mak­ing the most of the 15-20 knot winds from the south east.

Nonethe­less, Storm 2 (Don Al­gie) and Reig­ni­tion (Charles Wal­lis), quickly over­took QMS and had a bat­tle for the lead.

Storm 2 even­tu­ally crossed the fin­ish line first but on cor­rected time, Wob­bly Boot (Craig Pic­cinelli), was the clear win­ner, in what was his first race back from a re­cent break.

Reig­ni­tion took sec­ond place with Ris­ing Farrst (Tim Os­borne), tak­ing third.

Kameruka (Mark and Bob Beale), was the best starter in Di­vi­sion 3, but it wasn’t long be­fore High Tide (Shannon Hart), moved ahead to lead the di­vi­sion around the course.

Anthea (Dewi Hughes), en­joyed the strong winds to win on cor­rected time ahead of Kameruka and with Lorna Rose Too (Pete Mitchel­son), tak­ing a close third place.
