Seconds separate the twilight times
IT WAS a tight contest for Division 2 at last Wednesday’s Whitsunday Sailing Club twilight race, with Twister (Kevin Fogarty), Dehler Magic (Charlie Preen) and Treasure VIII (Rob Davis) all vying for the best result.
After claiming the best start, Treasure VIII fought hard to maintain a lead around the course, closely followed by Twister, who was fighting to keep Dehler Magic behind.
At the finish line only a minute separated the three boats. Meanwhile Wobbly Boot (Craig Piccinelli), Huahine (Nick Smail) and QMS (John Galloway) also enjoyed close and friendly rivalry, with again about a minute separating these three.
Wild Thing (Keith Roberts) was the only multihull in Division 1 and therefore claimed the best start, line honours and handicap victories by default.
Division 3 was contested by Kameruka (Mark and Bob Beale) Masquerade (Tom Vujasinovic), Riff Raff (Dan White) and La Quilta (Heather Sutton).
Kameruka again proved a clear start is often key to a line honours win but doesn’t necessarily mean a handicap win. This went to Masquerade.
Sailors were in good spirits for presentations back at the club, with everyone looking forward to a big weekend of racing ahead.
