Skiff Report | 24 September 2017
Race 3, Club Champs 1 and early in the morning the Westerly was blowing fresh to frightening which had a lot of the Skiffies feeling nervous. By the time we started the breeze had backed off and swung to a light Easterly.
Aristocrat have been one of the consistent performers so far this season and with superstar skipper Kurt Hansen filling in they continued to impress leading early.
East Coast Marine & Sail had their new boat firing and were in the lead pack with the Young Guns on TJS. The other boat in the lead pack also had some star recruits with Special K moving to the bow of Compass Global Markets to make way for Lee and Mackie.
Compass grabbed the win in a close fought race between these 4 boats which all sailed extremely well.
Also sailing extremely well was Weathertex. Swampy and his team put together a great race to take Handicap honours from Newcastle Psychiatry. Bethany & her teams' much improved performance grabbed them a well deserved 2nd spot.
1st - Compass Global Markets - Lee, Mackie & Special K
