Yesterday was another cracking day on the harbour……for sailing only. Through all the rain and gusts of 25 knots, Sydney Sailmakers gave the fleet another sailing lesson, to win the Graham “Curly” Colless Memorial Port Jackson Championship.
Form Civil lead the fleet at the first mark, but could not hold back Sydney Sailmakers for long. The latter skiff taking a good lead into Chowder Bay.
LCC rounded in 3rd, with Terms and Conditions 4th and Geotherm 5th.
The southerly was top end of the 3rd rigs on the beat into Rose Bay. Terms and Conditions unfortunately had a long swim half way up putting them out of 4th place.
There were plenty of fast rides had by all on the run back to Chowder Bay, and plenty of position changes. LCC got through Form Civil and Geotherm moved into 3rd when Form Civil took a wide mark rounding.
Sydney Sailmakers extended their lead on the final run to the finish in Athol Bay, to win by over 3 minutes, and on the same leg Geotherm nosed just ahead of LCC to claim 2nd; Form Civil 4th.
The fleet was graced by a few Cherubs who appeared to enjoyed themselves on the long harbour course. We hope they can join us more often.
