Despite lacklustre wind conditions plaguing the fleet for most of the afternoon – Most of the 17 boats in attendance managed to complete Race 2 of our Twilight Series I. It was a tell-tale sign of the diminishing NE Monsoon, as we had fluky winds with a sprinkle of rain. The Multihulls started first, with Eepai a little too eager, getting pushed across the start line before the horn went, resulting in having to complete her penalty before playing catch up with the fleet. Cicak earned their first bullet for the series, finishing comfortably ahead of a great comeback by Eepai in 2nd and Witblits in 3rd.
Nigel Signal’s solo effort on Stray Catz rewarded him with a win in the Beach Catamaran Class, as rivals Madfish II and the Nacra 15 decided to retire probably due to the light winds and strong outgoing currents. Kudos to Nigel for persevering until the new breeze set in!
The PY class was led from start to finish by Arbudhen, who was rewarded with victory after 2 consecutive third place finishes over the last 2 weekends. 2nd and 3rd place went to Minx and Sangaree respectively, both citing a good start and reduced mistakes during the race contributed to the positive result.
Waka Tere continue their winning ways in the IRC Class, finishing ahead of Born in Fire by a minute after handicap. Three 3rds from 3 consecutive weekends of racing also means a consistent performance by Invictus, as they look to close the gap between them and Waka Tere for the Series. With that we conclude the 2nd race of the Twilight Series I 2018.
