38 sailors from six clubs crossed a well contested starting line just after 2pm......

Grey skies and a decided lack of breeze on Sunday 19 September greeted sailors competing in Race 1 of the Flying 11 Upper Harbour Inter Club Regatta.

 

These conditions did not deter  38 sailors from six clubs whose patience was rewarded by the arrival of a gentle easterly just before the scheduled start.

 

Two boats from Greenwich Sailing Club, four from Lane Cove 12’ Sailing Skiff Club, three from Abbotsford 12’ Flying Squadron, five from Hunters Hill Sailing Club, three from Drummoyne Junior Sailing Club and one from Belmont 16 Foot Sailing Club crossed a well contested starting line just after 2pm.

 

The triangle gave plenty of scope for quick kite runs and a testing work back up to the finish. Race 1 was won by Harry Morton and Anita McCallum from Belmont sailing Twisted.  Race 2 followed on immediately and was won by Kanya Raj and Sarah Jones sailing Missleading from Hunters Hill. Firefly sailed by Ravi Raj and Emma Jones sailed very consistently with two second places.

 

Judging by the expressions on the sailors’ faces , the event was a great success. Thanks to Alex McQuillan for his efforts in organizing the series.

 

The next race will be hosted by Hunters Hill Sailing club on October 24.
