Twi­light race vic­tory

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

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.
