Saturday saw a smallish fleet sailing in steady 10 - 12 knots of breeze off the breakwater at Mackay. With SE breeze and flood tide, the seas were choppy and the tide managed to trick a few competitors. With races taking aprroximately 40 minutes to complete, it was easy to complete the three scheduled races in the time allowed.
There was close racing in every division, with three separate line honours winners from three races in the multihull division, although Daryl Skinner, sailing AirPower 2 managed two wins and a second to lead the fleet at the half way mark.
In the Senior Mono division, it was Marcus Bulstrode, sailing Expresso, who lead the fleet in each race, although Lucy Osborne managed a corrected time win in one race, to trail by one point.
In the juniors, it was a mixed bag, with Talia Bulstrode winning two races, but dropping her rig in the other race. Maya Turnbull leads the fleet by a single point from Dolma Parisi, with Talia a further point behind.
Racing continues on Sunday from 1000 Hrs
