Light winds for last June twi­light

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE fi­nal race of the Cum­ber­land Char­ter Yachts June Tw­light Se­ries saw 16 boats com­pete in very light con­di­tions. A dy­ing sea breeze caused the race to be short­ened af­ter two laps. In Di­vi­sion One, Quick

skips, with­out skip­per Pete Mil­lar, took out the Doyle Sail best start. She then held the lead through­out to take the line hon­ours and hand­i­cap first place for the tri­fecta.

Over­drive was sec­ond over the line and also on hand­i­cap and Aeolus com­pleted the fleet for a third.

Di­vi­sion Two only had four starters, with own­ers away and boats be­ing slipped.

Wob­bly Boot was first over the start line, but was over­taken by light wind spe­cial­ist,

QMS, who went on to take the line hon­ours and hand­i­cap wins.

With the light winds not suit­ing the heav­ier Dehler

Magic and Twis­ter, Wob­bly Boot took sec­ond on hand­i­cap, with Dehler third and Twis­ter fourth.

The light weight boats in Di­vi­sion Three, rev­elled in the con­di­tions, leav­ing the heav­ier keel boats in their wake.

Fuzzy Logic had a blinder, tak­ing out the best start, line hon­ours and hand­i­cap tre­ble.

Syn­chronic­ity was sec­ond over the line, with Kameruka third in the line and hand­i­cap hon­ours. Sar­dine, Mas­quer­ade, Is­land Time and Anthea made up the fin­ish­ing fleet num­bers.
