Last Friday was the first race of the popular Friday Twilight season, now sponsored by Audi Alto Artarmon, and as temperatures during the day rose above 30c, it was the perfect way to unwind and relax for the sailors. Conditions were extremely calm and quiet on the water with very light South West winds but still enough for the boats to get around the course. All five divisions were strongly represented and as always setting a great atmosphere both on and off the water. Racing was extremely close with a lot of boats finishing within less than a minute of each other.
The evening marked the commencement of our partnership with Audi Alto Artarmon who displayed a very fetching R8 on the hardstand drawing quite a crowd.
