CSC Twilight Series I 2024 (Race 4)

If you were just observing from afar, Race 4 of the Twilight Series I would have seemed uneventful and perhaps somewhat ordinary. But if you speak to the sailors you’d find out a series of happenings which were anything but ordinary. Fierce battles at the start/finish, man overboard situations and mark-rounding tussles made it an extraordinary Twilight Series Race!

In the IRC Class, Jong Dee and Red Rum One return to lock horns, with the latter scoring line honours and the former walking away with another bullet on corrected time. The J35 now sits pretty on top after 4 races, and looks set to secure the win for Twilight Series I on the 5th and final race next week. Red Rum One currently ties on points with Simba, with Race 5 as the deciding race for 2nd overall.

Boasting the largest fleet, for the series, the PY Class also sees 1 boat consolidating her position on top. While she did not produce her best performance yesterday, Sapphire Star’s 4th place finish in race 4  places her in the lead after 4 races, on a total of 8 points. She was bested by Jock, Brio and Skybird yesterday, and also put on a show for the sailors at the bar with her nail-biting one-two finish together with the Dehler 34. While Edwin and Luke scored line honours, her lead was not enough to win on corrected time, settling for 2nd overall. She was bested by the light and nimble Jock, which marks her first bullet for the series. The J24 had a good start, and that gave her an edge when it came to keeping up with the larger and faster boats. Completing the winners would be another agile boat, Brio. Her 3rd place finish places her 4th in the series, but has a good chance for 2nd or 3rd as she holds a discard in hand going into Race 5.

In the Multihull Class, Miss Visayan positions herself for the double going into next week’s finale, as she scores another bullet in Race 4 to accumulate 5 points from 4 races. The fight for 2nd place is where things are a little more interesting. Bula’s erratic performance this series means Sirius Swift has a good chance of unseating her smaller rival if she produces her best race next weekend (and if the crew stays onboard during the race!). Bubble Trouble’s perfect attendance this series secures her top spot both in the event and in our hearts! Thank you for keeping the beach catamaran flag flying throughout this season.

Congratulations to all winners – see you next week (18 & 19 May) for the back-to-back Twilight I and Sunday Series I Finale.
