Innamincka wins the MHYC 2018 Winter Sprint Series

John Crawford's Innamincka has won the MHYC 2018 Winter Sprint Series after the final two races were sailed today.

For race one, a patchy westerly resisted moving south as forecast and a large south-easterly swell made conditions difficult on The Sound.  As the breeze faded, the course was shortened but a number of boats failed the complete the course before the time limit.  Neil Padden's Wailea made the best of the situation, taking the race win from Another Dilemma and Lazy Dog.

After the wind had shifted from 250 to 120 degrees and freshened slightly, Race Officer Steve Tucker and his team were able to get the final race away - a short single lap from Grotto Point toward South Head and back.  Jack Stening's Stormaway took the line and handicap honours to finish the series.  Wailea was second on corrected time and Sirius third.

After six of the eight scheduled races were completed in the 2018 Winter Sprint Series, Innamincka (John Crawford) claimed the overall win, two points clear of Stormaway (Jack Stening) and Sirius (Garth Riley) four points further back.
