Hibiscus Marine Solutions Winter Race 8
Published 23:13 on 14 Sep 2020
1300hrs and 1305hrs on Sunday 13th September saw 11 white and 7 gold division boats on their respective start lines for the 2nd to last race of a Covid- 19 affected winter series. (Three races out of the originally programmed 10 race series have been lost due to the lockdowns, so far.)
20 to 26 knot southwest wind and flat water enabled everyone to enjoy some great conditions and great racing.
Several boats braved the conditions and put up extras on the reaching and running legs, some having less than desired results, with Memphis having the mother of all twists in their kite on the downwind leg, oh well, they did get the best start.
Only 2 minutes separated the first 8 boats in the white fleet on corrected time.
Results. White division. Line went to Big Kahoona. Corrected time saw Fastlane 1st, 3 seconds in front of Sniper, with 1 minute back to Big Kahoona in 3rd.
Gold division Line went to C McGuire. Corrected time saw Stark Raven 1st, Gentleman Joe 2nd, and C McGuire 3rd
Thanks to the Weiti race officers for setting the course and running a great race.
