Crews become the skippers in twilight race
WITH Overdrive still in her shed having a re-paint and Quick Skips’ owner hard at work, Wild Thing was the only multihull in Division 1 of Wednesday’s Whitsunday Sailing Club twilight race.
As this was also the Alternative Skipper race, Wild Thing’s owner Keith Richards handed over the helm to one of his crew, who took the trifecta of wins.
Eight competitors contested Division 2, with Reignition claiming the best start and holding a lead around the course to claim the line honours win as well.
The crew of Twister enjoyed a great race, coming in behind Another Fiasco by only 30 seconds, and a minute and-a-half ahead of their usual rival QMS.
Wobbly Boot and Dehler Magic remained close all afternoon, with ‘the boot’ just stretching ahead to cross ahead of Magic’s crew.
Synchronicity found her groove in Division 3, crossing the finish line ahead of Kameruka for the handicap win, although it was the consistently quick High Tide who stole the line honours victory.
