Crews be­come the skip­pers in twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

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.
