Interesting results in light air twilight race
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.
