CSC Sunday Series I 2024 (Race5/Finale)

The Sunday Series I finale experienced vastly different conditions to Saturday’s Twilight Race. With multiple weather systems building over the horizon, sailors enjoyed a prevailing easterly breeze in the waters off tekong, as they tackled a challenging pennant 4 course.

Fresh from her victory in the Twilight Series, Jong Dee’s wish for more participants in the IRC Class came true, as she was joined by 2 other Js, Jellico and Adona. Unofficially, the fleet was also more bustling with with  3 boats from SMU Sailing joining the course on a practice run for next week’s One-Design Championships. Excitement right off the bat as Jong Dee forced Adona over the line in a premature start, subsequently also succumbing to the same fate together with Jellico on leeward. Adona was quickest to recover, and she extended her lead comfortably over the rivals to score victory in Race 5. Jellico’s 2nd place finish was sufficient to defend her spot on top in the overall series, as Adona settles for 2nd. Jong Dee placed 3rd in both Race 5 and the overall series, a decent result from the Twilight Series I champions. The SMU sailors were not too shabby either, with one team surviving a broach on the downwind to Squance, and would have placed 3rd on corrected time if they had been racing.

In the PY Class, it was a battle between a J24 and a Young 84, as Jock and Forever Young scored good starts in an interesting match-up. While Jasper and his team took an early lead, they could not put enough distance between her and the slippery J24. The Jockstars eventually took the win on corrected time, a result which secured them 3rd overall in the series. Forever Young’s 2nd place efforts awarded her with a 1 point edge over the absent Birregurra and the series I title for the PY Class.

Another 2-way match unfolded in the Multihull Class, as Miss Visayan and Bula return to tussle for top spot. Great starts from both boats, but it was eventually Miss Visayan which crossed the line first, thus making it the weekend double – taking home the Twilight Series I and Sunday Series I title for the Multihull Class. Bula could not repeat her excellent performance in Race 5 of the Twilight Series, and settles for 2nd in both the race and the Series.

Bubble Trouble ended their sailing journey in Singapore with their final Sunday Series race before returning to the UK. Will Adeney and crew kept the beach catamaran flag flying high, as the remaining members of the class could not commit to the first club series for the year. She was joined by Addiction in yesterday’s race, whose 3 wins out of 5 races this series earned her the top spot in the class.

Congratulations to all the winners, we hope you enjoyed the wind conditions over the weekend. See you all next week for the CSC Keelboat One-Design Championships.
