The second Race of the Trade-A-Boat S&S34 Series was run in a fresh 20+knot northerly on the 23rd.
Tim Taylor got the determination award having pulled the rig out of Morning Star, repaired the damage, re-rigged the boat with a new boom, slab reefing, new lazy jacks and borrowed main from Lionheart to get to the start with about an hour to spare.
Sirius (Chris Cook and Richard Collins) got the stupidity award for thinking it was a northerly start and going to the wrong way costing them 15 minutes.
The race was eventually won by Red William (C Amos), Lionheart second and Morning Star third. Sirius eventually finished the race to record a fourth in the Series.
Due to an arduous club race the previous day, Morning T didn’t start.
If anyone else would like to come along and join in the fun, the start is at 0930 and we’re back in for lunch. contact Sandy YC on 9598 7444.
