Twilight race victory
THIRTEEN boats turned out to play on a blustery rain-threatening afternoon for the sailing club’s twilight race.
In division one, multihull Turning Point took the best start award and line honours, but was unable to keep Cheetah off the number one spot on the podium.
In division two, Reignition took the best start prize in a closely fought line up, with only metres separating the whole fleet. After winning the Doyle’s Sails award, Reignition went on to take line honours and handicap.
QMS was second over the line, but missed the podium.
Twister and Dehler Magic had a great tussle, swapping the lead several times with Dehler over the line by only five seconds in front.
Wobbly Boot was only 40 seconds behind Twister.
The six-boat division three fleet also had a close start with Fortana 2 taking honours.
Kameruka and Synchronicity had their usual close tussle with Kameruka taking the line honours by only three seconds from his fellow Clubman, neither however making the podium.
Third over the line, High Tide was also beaten by the handicapper. Podium honours went to Masquerade, Fuzzy Logic and Fontana 2.
Last week we reported Rossgo went for an unsupervised float after being let go by crew members. This wasn’t the case, the culprit being a shackle that broke on the trailer winch.
