A freshening north-easterly and a fleet of 71 boats made for some good racing on the harbour this afternoon. The final race of the Combined Clubs Inshore Series was conducted by Race Officer Steve Tucker and the Middle Harbour Race Management Team, but is also part of the ongoing Summer and Annual Pointscores for the MHYC IRC, PHS, J/24 and Adams 10 fleets.
In the club series, Rock Solid (Mitchell Miller) claimed the Adams 10 One Design win from Another Dilemma and Sirius, with Another Dilemma (Jim Vaughan) top of the PHS results.
In the PHS competition, Division 1 went to Toy Box 2 (Ian Box) from Kukukerchu and Khaleesi. MRX (Geoff Pearson) claimed the Division 2 win from Stormaway and Wailea, and Escape (Dean Dransfield) took first place from Dania and Waterborne Again.
Innamincka (John Crawford) claimed the J/24 One Design win.
On IRC, Khaleesi (Rob Aldis & Sandy Farquharson) claimed the Division 1 win ahead of Toy Box 2 and Kukukerchu. MRX won Division 2 from Wailea and Stormaway.
After a non-pointscore race to start the series due to Covid and one abandonment, the Combined Clubs Inshore Series came down to the results of five races. Middle Harbour Yacht Club boats excelled.
Khaleesi (Rob Aldis & Sandy Farquharson) finished top of the Division 1 series standings, with Toy Box 2 (Ian Box) 4th and Kukukerchu (David Ross) 5th. Another Dilemma (Jim Vaughan) claimed the Division 2 series win from Sirius (Garth Riley) in 2nd and MRX (Geoff Pearson) in 5th.
The Combined Clubs Inshore Series has been a great innovation for the 2020-2021 season, providing interclub competition and larger fleets. As more boats register for ORC Club, it is anticipated this equipment based handicapping system will gain further importance for the interclub event.
Congratulations to all the MHYC boats!
