Tight start for club twilight race
THE Wednesday twilight race at Whitsunday Sailing Club attracted 16 boats for this week’s chapter, with another cloudy, but dry race.
A perfect 10 knot wind greeted the competitors as the race got under way.
The fleet must have been practicing their starts, as there were just seconds separating the boats as they crossed the line, with Wild Thing, Crossbow and Synchronicity taking the biccies for first over the start line.
However, once the races got under way, it was clear that the faster boats took control of their respective fleets, with Turning Point sprinting around the course for a line honours win in Division 1.
However, they were not fast enough to outscore Overdrive on corrected time.
In Division 2, it was Reignition who likewise took the lead around the course and line honours result, however Twister took the prize for first on corrected time.
Division 3 saw a close race as the fleet were well matched.
First to finish was Synchronicity, however corrected time result went to Anthea.
Island Time had their first race at their new club, and said that they were extreme- ly happy that they have relocated to Airlie Beach.
ALL HANDS ON DECK: Reignition puts on the pace, taking home the line honours.
