Sec­onds sep­a­rate the twi­light times

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

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.
