Last Sunday’s twilight was again the pick of the week to be out on Sydney Harbour. Fourteen boats were on the water taking advantage of the 10-12 knot south easterly breeze.
It was a family affair on board two of the RSYS Elliots. Brother and sister Lester and Natasha Miller had their regular Optimist sailing children crewing on board Elliott3, pictured above. Father Stephen Wilson on board with son David and friends were tackling the asymmetrical spinnaker onboard Elliott 4.
Congratulations to Warwick Back on Yertle who won the spinnaker division this week. The Yngling class sailors are using the Sunday Twilights to switch around crew positions on various boats and build confidence with more time on the water. Pictured above is Amanda Hicks sailing Shining Star. RSYS Club boats are available to members. For more information contact Adam Tran via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the non-spinnaker division, the fast finishing Assassin (Phil Cutts, top) ran down the fleet on the run home and crossed the finish line 20 seconds ahead of Solacious (Amy Gojnich) and Petty Cash (Geoff Barnum, above) a further 17 seconds back.
Thanks to our race officials Joyce Warn and Susan Wade for managing the fleet results.
The CCA is open for dinner following Sunday Twilights, and is a great way to finish off the weekend.
