Saturday - Serious Racing Begins

Posted in Categories: Announcements

Another beautiful day in the Whitsundays, over 40 boats ready to race - what more could you ask for?

Sun shining, 10 to 15 knots of breeze from the south-east and calm water. The Sabots and Optimists sailed three short races on the inshore course whilst the seniors sailed their three races outside.

On the senior course, Kaos, a 29er sailed by Eva and Klaus Lorenz, led the fleet and crossed the line 5 seconds ahead of Airpower 2, an Arrow cat sailed by Darryl Skinner from Yeppoon, and further back, Myra Robertson sailed her Laser, Thufferin’ Thuccotash very well to take third on yardstick.

The Juniors started well with five boats finishing the first race within ten seconds! The winner on yardstick was Aidan Gummow in his Optimist, Plan B, with Chris Barsi in Another Menace just behind.

By the end of day one, Fire 6, John Hatfield was in the lead on the Junior course, having won two races, Aidan was in second and Chris in a close third place overall.

The honours on the Senior course were split between Myra, Eva, Darryl and Greg Heath, sailing with Mike Spillman in their Tasar, Icon. After five races, Darryl had won three to lead the event, followed by Myra and Greg, with Bill and Jenny Mairs close behind with consistent placings in all races.
