The 2nd race for our Sunday Series resulted in a few casualties in the multihull class – as Eepai and the Nacra 15 had to retire from their respective classes due to capsizing. Glad to see and hear of sailors going above and beyond to try and look out for their fellow sailors in the water. Rescue efforts were swift and effective due to the immediate reports from various participants on the course. This display of good seamanship from our members is something CSC can be really proud of.
In the Beach Catamaran Class, Scott McCook triumphs single-handed on HIPP, taking line honours and staying comfortably ahead of Uli Braun’s Nacra 15 and Kaze in 2nd and 3rd respectively. The other Nacra 15, sailed single-handed by youth member Bryan Ngu struggled after her initial capsize, and eventually retired from the race. Despite furling their head sail at the Club line and forgetting that the course includes a leg to squance and back, Witblits still managed a win over 2nd placed Cicak by a significant margin in the Cruising Multihull Class.
The PY Class saw 5 boats participating, and Balqis securing another bullet to extend her lead in the series. Southern Light finished a close 2nd, edging out Arbudhen in 3rd. Race 1’s runner up Ikaroa had to retire from the race, leaving her the uphill task of crawling back up in the Series with 2 races to go. A good start from all boats in the IRC Class made it a close fight on the first beat to Changi Buoy. Born in Fire’s motley crew eventually emerged victorious despite a nearly 8 minute lead by Red Rum. Red Rum’s efforts rewarded them with line honours and 2nd place by a slim 6 seconds margin over Jong Dee in 3rd.
With that we conclude the second race for the series, please enjoy the photos and click the link below for the results. Thank you and see you next week for our Twilight Race!
