Due to the poor wind conditions, Race Organisers raised the N over A flag for the 4th race of our Twilight Series II, signalling sailors to the bar for early drinks.
The overall standings going into the final race on 12th September is really close and exciting for the IRC and PY Class. In the IRC Class, Jong Dee tops the table with 6 points, followed by Red Rum and Adona on 8 points. Kurt Metzger’s Waka Tere will be looking to score a bullet in the final race to mix things up – as they sit just outside the top 3 with a total of 9 points.
It is a case of David vs Goliath squaring off this Saturday, as the smallest and the biggest boat of the fleet tie on points for first place. Marut’s 2 bullets give her the slight advantage, as the little Jenneau Fun is looking to make it a hat-trick of firsts for this series. The Goliath, Sangaree (Holland 44) will be doing all she can to extend her lead and claim line honours – hopefully enough to meet her handicap and take the win for the Twilight Series II. let also not forget the next 6 boats hot on their heels – Simba, Shardana, Olmeto, Jonty J, Minx and Remington all have equal opportunity to claim a place on the podium this weekend.
3 bullets from 3 races mean that it is Jaza Too has sealed the win for the Multihull Class in Twilight Series II. We hear they will be giving the Twilight finals a miss, together with current 2nd placed boat Cicak, as they plan for a weekend jaunt to Kusu Island this Friday. In the Beach Catamaran Class, Balqis II scored the best attendance of the fleet, rewarding her with a first in the current series standings. she leads by a slim margin of 1 point – a gap which 2nd placed Stray Catz is eager to overcome this weekend.
All the best to the participants for this Saturday Twilight & Sunday’s Series II Finals!
