Mul­tis take a twi­light course

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

LAST Wed­nes­day was the first race in the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s May Twi­light se­ries and for once there were four mul­ti­hulls con­test­ing the start.

Regular con­tender Wild Thing was joined by Quick Skips, Sirocco and the new Grainger, Bare­foot.

Look­ing fast in the wa­ter, Bare­foot soon led the race and held po­si­tion to take the line honours.

Mean­while, only 30 sec­onds sep­a­rated Quick Skips and Wild Thing.

In Di­vi­sion 2, Reig­ni­tion soon took the usual lead, with the rest of the fleet ex­tremely close.

John Gal­loway judged the start to per­fec­tion, claim­ing the award, but was un­able to chase down his ri­val Twis­ter, who pushed hard and crossed the fin­ish ahead of QMS and Trea­sure VIII.

High Tide was again the line honours vic­tor for Di­vi­sion 3, with Mas­quer­ade tak­ing the best start.

There was close rac­ing be­tween Syn­chronic­ity and Kameruka with just a six-sec­ond split and be­tween Anthea and Lorna Rose Too with a ni­nesec­ond split.

Pre­sen­ta­tions were held at the club, with Sirocco, Dehler Magic and Serendip­ity tak­ing the podium wins and San­toro (Dale Tans­ley) be­ing awarded the Stone Mother­less Last prize for be­ing the ab­so­lute last to fin­ish.
