After a month’s break, Club racing returns to CSC, starting with the Twilight Series II, Race 3. The Twilight Series sailing course takes sailors on a casual passage parallel to our coast, racing between the Squance and Changi navigational buoys. Saturday’s race saw a total of 11 boats participating across 3 classes. With a consistent breeze from the South-southwest and paired with fair weather, it was a great day of sailing for all.
In the IRC Class, a solo effort from Mr Lucas Van Maarschalkerweerd reaped rewards, maneuvering Minx to a convincing victory on corrected time. Despite struggling to get the support from his regular crew, Lucas did not seem to be handicapped by this – managing well alone to keep well within sight of Red Rum One. The Archambault 40 took line honours and claimed 2nd on handicap, finishing a comfortable 3 minutes ahead of 3rd-placed Jong Dee.
The largest fleet on the course boasts 7 boats participating, a competitive mix of PY Keelboats. Separated by no more than a minute between each boat on corrected time, the fleet seemed extremely well-matched on the course. Edging ahead by a mere 23 seconds, Remington scored her 2nd victory in this series, beating the all-women team on Jock. Skipper Suzanne was left lamenting what could have been, if they did not touch the CSC 1 buoy – incurring a 360 penalty. Waka Tere rounds up the winners in 3rd.
After a successful campaign at the RSYC Regatta, Singapore Regatta and Western Circuit Sailing Regatta, Miss Visayan returns to home waters and continues to participate in our Club events – flying the flag high for the Multihull Class. Congratulations and thank you for the support!
Bravo Zulu to all winners. We look forward to running the Sunday Series II Race 4 next week – see you then.
