With a few of our regular yachties racing over at RSYC this weekend, the Twilight Racing yesterday was an intimate affair of 6 Keelboats, 3 Cruising Multihulls and 1 Beach Cat.
Both Jong Dee and Persian Cat gained tremendously from the small numbers, securing a bullet for the series in their respective classes (IRC & Beach Catamaran).
In the PY Class, New Blue Eyes took full advantage of the light and gusty conditions to power ahead of her heavier rivals – securing first place after corrected time. Minx looked a comfortable 2nd, as she eased their way throughout the course – some of her crew even having time for a leisurely photoshoot with the camera / safety boat. Marshmellow completed the podium in 3rd, a consistent performance by Skipper Nicky Marsh and crew to keep them in the running for the overall Series II title.
The Cruising Multihulls were led for most of the course by Baloo – the quickest trimaran in the fleet. However, they fell just a little shy of a podium finish, missing out on 2nd place by less than a minute on handicap. Cicak’s awesome start most definitely helped them to secure a deserving bullet – a minute ahead of 2nd placed Eepai.
Congratulations to all the winners, we look forward to next week’s Sunday Series II – Race 3. Good luck to all CSC boats participating at the RSYC Regatta!
