Easter Sunday - The Climax

Posted in Categories: Announcements

Campers on the shore woke to light breezes and an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids.

Wind was patchy from the South-west but at start time was beginning to swing to the south-east. A delayed start got the racing under way in a light easterly, with shifts aplenty. The fickle winds saw 505s, Tasars, 29ers and the Arrow all fighting for the lead but the winner was the Flying 11, On The Run, sailed by Breianna Whitehead who made the best of the windshifts. At the end of the day, the event was won by Darryl Skinner on his Arrow, from Myra Robertson on her Laser Radial with Bill and Jenny Mairs overtaking Greg Heath and Mike Spillman to be the top Tasar and third overall in the senior fleet.

The junior sailors continued their close racing and managed to have another five races today to round off the regatta. After ten races, the winner was Chris Barsi on Another Menace from Townsville who was the most consistent winner, and broke away in a couple of races for big wins. John Hatfield on Another Menace was the second placed Sabot with a win and a couple of second placings to get ahead of Aidan Gummow on his Optimist. Aidan managed one win on day two, but it was not enough to beat the top two Sabots.

Well done to all our sailors for their conduct on the water, thanks to the volunteers who helped all weekend, and the staff at the club for all the food, drinks and support.

A special thanks to Marlin Marine and Embroidery Plus, our sponsors who help to cover the costsof putting on the regatta, and are great supporters of Junior sailing.
