Melbourne turned on a perfect day for sailing and 9 sailors enjoyed more heats of the Docklands Short Course Series this Sunday.  With sunny skies and 10-15 knots of steady south-easterly, conditions were ideal.  The program of two and three lap windward-leeward courses was completed within two hours.

 

Sarah Millsom, sailing again with her brother Craig, scored two first placings today in the Access 303 division.  Having competed in each of the 22 heats sailed since October, and placing consistently in each session, Sarah has now established a 28 point lead in the series.  With only two more race days scheduled, she may be difficult to beat.  In his first visit to Docklands today, Neil Patterson also impressed with two race wins today.

 

In the Access 2.3 division, Marke Thorpe claimed all but one of the races today and has taken the lead by two points from Martin Waller. 

 

The Access Liberty competition is expected to recommence for the next two sessions as Cadeyrn Gaskin and Russell Phillips prepare for the State Championships being held in March at Lysterfield Sailing Club.

 

The next racing days are February 19 and March 4.
