Fresh Conditions for the Last Sailing Day of the Year

Nine boats took part in Sunday’s race of two laps from Fingal to the motorway, with ideal conditions of an incoming tide against a fresh southerly wind.

Peter Fell led the single-handers all the way to the finish, with Lex Branch never getting in contention after an unfortunate pre-start capsize.

Doug Haig beat Peter Ross by a boat length in the Corsairs with Michael Grace
putting in a credible performance. Geoffrey Colwill and Aron in a club Pacer had to finish on just his jib having capsized on the last lap.

Dave Robinson on ‘The Gambler’ revelled in the strong wind, winning the multi-hulls!

New member Perry completed the race on the club laser 4.7 Tippy Too.

See you all in the new year for hopefully our first NSW/Qld combined fleet race for a shortened summer season.
