In­ter­est­ing re­sults in light air twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

WITH just eight knots of breeze blow­ing, there were some in­ter­est­ing re­sults in last week’s Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club twi­light race.

Boats in both di­vi­sions en­joyed great bat­tles, with Di­vi­sion 3 com­peti­tors Riff Raff (Dan White) and Anthea (Dewi Hughes), fin­ish­ing within seconds of one another.

After hav­ing such a strong race, Anthea took the best start and line hon­ours wins, with Riff Raff tak­ing first place on cor­rected time.

Close be­hind were Kameruka (Mark and Bob Beale) and new-comer Drift­wood (An­drew Wood), who took third place on cor­rected time.

In Di­vi­sion 2, Tulip (Bernie van’t Hof), got away quickly to take the best start and con­tin­ued to sail well, fin­ish­ing first on line hon­ours in just un­der one hour.

Reig­ni­tion (Charles Wal­lis) and Queens­land Marine Ser­vices (John Gal­loway), came in af­ter­wards, to take sec­ond and third places on line hon­ours.

On cor­rected time how­ever, it was Bobby D (Ross Win­ter­bourn), which took the top hon­our, fol­lowed closely by Twister (Kevin Fog­a­rty) and Es­o­teric (Col Forster), in third.
