Skiff Report | 15 October 2017

 
2 races for the Belmont fleet on Sunday and the first one had our strongest breeze of the season so far. With a handicap start it was Konami away first in the lead. Newcastle Psychiatry reeled them in and held the lead for a while but the veterans on YB Flat stormed home to take the win. YB Flat sailed a superb race not only winning the handicap, but taking out the double for the scratch win as well. Southern Beaches, Lion and Empty Jets were other boats to have good races.

The 2nd race of the day was a scratch start and the breeze lightened and started to shift around quite a bit. The Young Guns hooked into a big shift up the first work to have TJS in the lead early, YB Flat was in the lead pack again but it was a race of snakes and ladders with placings changing as the wind swung. Hahn Super Dry was going well, as was Pepsi Max. The last work had Fire Stopping with the old legend Skin in the bow and Insight Building come into contention and the last run had the pack re-shuffle again with 9 boats sprinting downwind in contention for the win. Insight snuck across the line in front with the Fire Truck in 2nd spot. Pepsi did "The Buffalo Girls" and went around the outside to grab the final podium position.
