Sailing Results:

Wednesday 07/02/2018: Summer Twilight Series – Race 7 of 10
We saw 8 boats brave the winds for a quick exciting race around the cans. The fleet made use of all the space made available to them on the long beat back to Phoenix and looked a bit like the “scatterlings of Africa” (they were all over the place). 1st Reaction, 2nd Jabulani and 3rd Bonnie Lass.
Saturday 10/02/2018
: RTC Series 2 Race 1 of 4.
We saw just 5 boats sailing. Wind and weather were near perfect for the afternoon race. 1st Strega, 2nd DHL Blue Tango and 3rd Bonnie Lass.
