Turn­ing Point in the Twi­light Race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

JOIN­ING the mul­ti­hull fleet last Wed­nes­day in the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club Jan­uary Twi­light Se­ries was Sir­rocco, whose crew en­joyed close rac­ing with Over­drive. Over­drive took the best start award and was a mere 10 sec­onds from Sirocco at the fin­ish in Sirocco’s favour. It was the newly bought Turn­ing Point which took the line hon­ours’ brag­ging rights a com­fort­able 10 min­utes ahead of the fleet, show­ing this is go­ing to be the mul­ti­hull to beat.

QMS again grabbed the best start in Divi­sion 2 and re­mained in front of the fleet around the course, beat­ing Trea­sure VIII by over a minute, with Wob­bly Boot an­other minute be­hind the two.

Twis­ter suf­fered some un­for­tu­nate break­ages, with the head­sail sheet snap­ping and a hole in the head­sail, caus­ing time loss and forc­ing them into last po­si­tion.

Mas­quer­ade stole the best start from High Tide again this week, but High Tide fought back to claim the line hon­ours win again just ahead of Kameruka.

Fon­tana 2 pushed hard, cross­ing the fin­ish a minute ahead of Mas­quer­ade to claim the podium win.

Pre­sen­ta­tions were at the club as crews looked for­ward to a week­end of fun at Montes Reef Re­sort.
