Old Bulls fight back!

Well after the various upsets of the previous weeks, Megafreight came roaring back to cross the line first this time, and producing a clear win on corrected time as well. Well done to them! Second across the line was Faraway, and only a few seconds behind them was Skebenga.Now I know this is supposed to be a handicap race - and indeed it is - but the battle for line honours has become very interesting with each of Skebenga, Faraway and Megafreight capable of crossing first! Not sure how Skebenga is managing this but it's quite amazing.

Anyway, back to the story, summary results on corrected time:

1. Megafreight
2. JML2
3. Faraway
4. Aquamania
5. Skebenga
6. Savannah

Skebenga crosses first!

For the first time in ages and ages, line honours has not gone to either of Faraway or Megafreight! Skebenga, a well equipped Fast 42, is starting to show her potential in no uncertain terms. In last night's race, she crossed a full 87 seconds ahead of Megafreight, and about ten minutes ahead of Faraway. Conditions were extremely light and I have no doubt that a few holes played some part in this all, but it is equally amazing to see Skebenga do so well in such light wind. Well done Paul and team. There is definitely a new player at the front of the fleet! Watch this space.

Well done to JML-2 for winning on corrected time.

It is also nice to see Reaction in the fleet, we do need an RCOD to look at!

Results on corrected time:
1. JML 2 
2. Megafreight 
3. Skebenga 
4. QBI 
5. Faraway 
6. Savannah 
7. Reaction

Summer Season Wednesday Racing Starts Again!

The Wednesday Summer Series started in fine style with eight boats on the water, and fourteen knots of South-Easter. Megafreight just pipped Faraway over the line (3 seconds!) - to take first place - line honours and corrected time! Skebenga arrived only 7 seconds after Faraway! Hells Bells, what a finish! Skebenga is going to be a heck of a contender this season....

Have a good look at the full results here!
