Keel sailing

With an anticipated forecast of very strong winds associated with a cold front, twenty hardy crews from Hillarys Yacht Club were pleased to start before the big blow on Sunday morning.

In winter the yachts commence on a staggered start based on handicap with the bulk of the fleet timed to finish together. Although the first four yachts in division one finished within two minutes of each other Perle (John Bird) led the group with Salamander (Bruce Bradford) second and Lithium (Wayne Pitcher) third and fastest.

In division two another front marker was successful with Panache (Geoff and Rita James) winning from Helga (Mark Taylor) and Farrouk (Lee Burrows and Rod Hernaman). Covert Operation (Bart Brouwer and Graham Atkinson) was fastest.

Chris Blackney made a successful return to racing in division three with a first and fastest on Vaya Con Dios, with Sheer Magic (Tony Waymouth) second. Larraine Brindle having acquired Anastasia in Albany to race at HYC is still at the handicapper’s mercy and finished third, but will be better for the outing in those conditions.
