Most excitement was around the monohull long course championship with Mainiac and Mr Freeze on equal points.
A pleasant NE breeze came in just before the start - Mainiac, Mr Freeze and Southern Cross were all close together up the first work. Mr Freeze and Mainiac pulled out a small lead and proceeded to match race for most of the erst of the race - never more than a few boatlengths apart. The second last work decided the race with a small windshift giving Mr Freeze a jump which they held to the end despite Mainiacs best efforts. Of significant note was the fact that Southern Cross was only a minute behind - our Sharpie fleet is looking really competitive for next season.
Well done to Mr Freeze (Todd, Hayden and Brad) for winning the championship. Also, thanks to Kevin for standing in as my foreward hand for the race - it was good to have a sailor from another competitive Sharpie on board to get some advice !
Poseidon sailed really well and took out handicap honours easily. They are leading the overall club pointscore - however there are still three boats who can win that event in the last heat next weekend - Poseidon, Wilful Intent and Skulker.
The Sharpies will be heading off to Batemans Bay next weekend for the last state titles heats - Mainiac is currently running second and can still win that event. I believe all 5 boats will be going. In addition, our 505s will be travelling down for the regatta - they look like having a good fleet there as well.
