Multihulls meet in twilight race
FOR once, Rupert King and his multihull Overdrive were joined by Sirocco (Marcus Arthur) and Wild Thing (Keith Roberts) for the weekly Whitsunday Sailing Club twilight race.
Wild Thing claimed the best start for Division 1, and with clear undisturbed air, carried the lead around the course to take the line honours victory. Overdrive and Sirocco had a close race, with a 10-second split in Overdrive’s favour at the finish.
