There was a breezy and gusty westerly for Race 2 of the Middle Harbour Twilight and first race of the Women's Twilight Series. 28 boats took on the challenging conditions, with massive wind shifts, gusts and lulls in Middle Harbour and beating back across The Sound in a westerly up to 30 knots.
In the Twilight Pre-Christmas Pointscore, Rob Aldis' Kayimai was the first Division 1 boat home ahead of Wailea (Neil Padden) and TSA Management (Tony Levett). David West and the crew of Eliza claimed the Division 2 win from No Friends (Geoff Charters) and Gusto (Angus Grinham). Grahame Jackson and the GJLaw N Mocean team claimed their first race win, beating home Freedom (Stephen Smith) and Plan B (Warren Lesnie). Harry Brigden's Chowringhee was the best of Division 4, ahead of Single Malt (Peter Gilliland) and Cutting Loose (Tim Kaill).
Liz Charles was at the helm of Kayimai to claim the Division 1 prize for the Women's Twilight. Tracey Richardson topped Division 2 on the Adams 10 No Friends and Amanda Hicks steered Peach Teats Velocity to the Division 3 win.
There was plenty of fun back ashore with music by Rick Herbert and a selection of great curries by Dan and Sarah with crews enjoying the food and a few drinks on the beach in the lead-up to the prizegiving. Peter Portanger was the winner of the SailPass member lucky draw tonight.
