Two Island Race Results

On Sunday is was the Two Island Race. Eight yachts participated.

As always with the Two Island Race it was full of intrigue. The fleet headed off first to Lion Island in a steady easterly breeze. Pin end seemed favoured but only Bangalla was at that end of the line. She got off to a good start and led as the fleet headed out into Broken Bay. In the (mild) swell it was time for Chill, helmed by Bob Torning, to show off her pace in the conditions. She led around Lion Island with a port rounding. Only Wimmera and Diablo rounded to starboard. It was waves vs tide, and I think waves were the winner. Chill took a big lead on the way back up Pittwater by sticking to the right. For the rounding of Scotland Island, all but Resurgent took the island to starboard. This proved a mistake by the majority - at least by my (too late to use!) calcs. Taking Scotland Island to port was shorter and with less of a beat. The starboard rounding yachts were hoping for the forecast of a SE wind to kick in, but it never really did. That said, Resurgent didn’t quite catch Bangalla. Chill held on to take 1st place on scratch. Meanwhile Laura helmed by David Boyd with his daughter on board sailed a very consistent race. The close contest with Summer Wine kept her focused. She won on handicap and took out the Two Island Race trophy. Well done.

 

Sydney Harbour observations (Wedding Cake West) showed a breeze at 9-12kt with gusts of 11-15kt mainly from the E/ESE. It was similar on Pittwater and pretty steady from the east.

We raced the 12.6Nm course of the Lion Island and Scotland Island combo.
