Tight start for club twi­light race

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

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.
