Weather affects turnout at twilight
LAST Wednesday’s wet weather deterred many of the Whitsunday Sailing Club’s (WSC) twilight sailors from taking part in the weekly race.
Nonetheless the rain moved offshore with those boats that did compete sailing in dry skies and light swirly winds.
With the change of wind, WSC race officers and volunteers Shane Beyer and Paul Barry reset the course to face into the 180 degree wind shift.
In Division 2, Tulip, skippered by Bernie van’t Hof, enjoyed a good start while chasing Queensland Marine Services (John Galloway) and Treasure VIII (Clay Bauman).
At the end of the race, Tulip came in first, followed by QMS in second place and Treasure VIII in third.
Meanwhile, Lorna Rose Too (Peter Mitchelson), enjoyed the light breezes across the course in Division 3.
Club officials say they are now looking forward to beautiful winter weather and full twilight fleets. New participants in the weekly races are welcome.
