Eleven boats enjoyed easy and fast sailing, with many under spinnakers for race 10 of the Tweed Valley Sailing Club’s Summer Series.
Fastest on the day was Kate Yeomans on her Laser Bluey. Kate excelled in the conditions, leaving second place three minutes behind.
Second finisher was Laser Silent Partner (John Heywood) and third was another Laser Siesta (Gary McCrohan).
But the premier event on the day was the second heat of the Northern Rivers Corsair Class Championship where Keenas (Mark Reynolds, Craig Foley and Marg Walgers) got top points. The win puts Keenas in first place for the Championship after two races.
Although Keenas got away very quickly and built a strong early lead, they had to fight for it, as second placed Fairlight (Alison Blatcher, Matt Andrews and Bernet) were only a minute back and closing with a determined effort.
The next three Corsairs finished within 30 seconds after a very close contest. Third went to Nimbis, fourth to Swell Lady, and Epic was fifth.
There were three junior crews racing their own boats.
The club is supporting a Juniors team at the Manly Junior National Championships this summer. Junior boats are available at the club for those who don’t have their own
The next event in Fingal Head will be this Sunday, December 1.
