Saturday 10 November brought a sunny day and a moderate south-easterly - perfect conditions for the inshore sprints.
It was busy on the sound with a number of ship movements adding to the usual ferry traffic and a lot of clubs running courses in the area. Two races were completed for the Open, Adams 10 and No.1 Divisions, although the first race for Division 2 was abandoned due to the unfair influence of shipping.
In Race 3 of the Inshore Sprints Series (the first race of the day), Toy Box 2 (Ian Box) claimed the win from Nine Dragons and Stormaway on PHS and also took the IRC win. Patrick Delany’s Powderhulk took the One Design and PHS prize for Adams 10s, with No Friends and Kick’nChase next on OD. Peter Woodhead’s XC3SS claimed the Division 1 PHS win from Mortgage Choice Rumba and Forty Two.
In Race 4, Ian Box and the Toy Box 2 team made it two from two with another win, this time from MRX (Geoff Pearson) who took the IRC win. Stormaway was third on PHS. Mitch Miller and the Rock Solid crew were the first to finish in the Adams 10s, ahead of Kick’nChase and Powderhulk. Geoff Charters’ No Friends claimed the PHS win. In Division 1, it was Forty Two (John McGrory & Mike Coleman) from Mortgage Choice Rumba and XC3SS. Innamincka (John Crawford) claimed the Division 2 and the J24 One Design win with Junior and Waterborne Again next on PHS.
In the Saturday Social Sailing race, Max Theeboom’s Caviar was first home from Nashira and Delphin.
