Trea­sure 8 takes out divi­sion two

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

AN­OTHER gusty and over­cast Wed­nes­day greeted the fleet for the lat­est twi­light race at Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club. With 15 boats spread across three di­vi­sions, it was up to the sailors to make the most of the con­di­tions.

The mul­ti­hull divi­sion was an­other two-horse race. Over­drive (Ru­pert King) made the most of the con­di­tions over Turn­ing Point, af­ter a great start re­main­ing within range of the faster boat through­out the course. This re­flected in the fi­nal re­sults, with Over­drive win­ning on cor­rected time by two min­utes.

Divi­sion two was a very tight af­fair, with five of the seven boats fin­ish­ing with less than three min­utes sep­a­ra­tion on cor­rected time.

A clean start by the en­tire fleet en­abled Reig­ni­tion to take the lead on the wa­ter, but a con­se­quent dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion on tech­ni­cal is­sues meant the win­ner across the line and race win­ner was Trea­sure 8.

AT THE MARK: QMS was close be­hind the lead­ers dur­ing Wed­nes­day’s twi­light rac­ing from the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.
