Skiff Report | 17 September 2017
Another light breeze for the skiff race on Sunday and Pepsi Max bolted out of the blocks to claim the colour telly and lead at the first mark.
On the first run it was Redicrete that used a "get out of jail free card" and after rounding the first mark deep in the fleet slipped into the lead. Empty Jets showed they can race at the front if they make the start on time and Minder and YB Flat were also challenging for the lead. At the bottom mark for the final time it was neck and neck with Empty Jets, Redicrete and Minder. Rosey piloted Minder towards the right side of the course and hit the front to claim their 2nd win.
Lion sailed a great race as well to claim a handicap victory.
After 2 races we can see that consistency is going to be paramount. So far Minder has shown great consistency sailing in the lead pack and grabbing a last minute win in both races. The only other boat that has shown consistent form has been Aristocrat who have done very well in both races. The rest of the fleet will be striving to even out their performances and take the challenge to these to boats who have emerged as the early favourites in the Club Championship and Pointscore respectively.
