Pleasure & Pain got the best of the start with Truck and Space Monkeys in hot pursuit. Mainiac was next followed by The Ribwich and Blowflies. Amelia was going well on the Laser and was joined on the short course by Dylan and Connor on the club Flying 11.
As the race progressed, Truck had a small advantage over Pleasure & Pain and Space Monkeys with the others a bit further back.
The Ribwich capsized and got their mast stuck in the mud for a while, followed by Amelia whose centreboard slipped through when capsized. The response boat was busy ! Next, Space Monkey's main sheet disintegrated causing retirement the Mainiac snapped two 1/4" bolts on the forestay fitting and lost the mast. Thanks to Jim who withdrew from the TY race to pick up Mainiac while the response boat sorted out other issues.
By the end of the race, Truck finished first followed by Pleasure & Pain, Blowflies and Virtual Reality.
On a side note, most of the Sharpies went to Georges River on Sunday with all performing well in the four race sprint series. Blur was on fire with Dean skippering winning three of the four races.
