Concierge Traveller Spring Series – Race 2

Race 2 of CYCA’s 2019 Concierge Traveller Spring Series continued the theme of wild, windy conditions dished out to competitors in last week’s opener. In fact, with the return of sub-20 degrees temperatures and a gusty 20-25 knot wind, competitors were in for another fun-filled (but chilly) day on the harbour!

While the breeze blew from the south-west in the Concierge Traveller Spring Series opener, a full 180-degree shift was on for yesterday’s race with the 20-25 knots blowing in from the north-east.

Twenty-three competitors across three divisions took to the pursuit-style start line off Point Piper with good, close racing had by all. Division 1 saw Charles Parry-Okeden’s Crystal Cutter III rise victorious over Robert Drury’s Pazazz II in second and Mattijs Willenborg’s Business as Usual third.

Division 2 saw less than five minutes separate the finish times of the first three boat across the line, with even their corrected times not far apart. John Hewitt & Chris Johnson’s Sea Ya took home the silverware with Meredith Trevallyn-Jones’ Peach Teats-Velocity second and Hugh Murray-Walker’s Oscar third.

Division 3, our non-spinnaker division, saw Derek McDonnell & Rogerio Blanc-Ramos’ Applejack take first place, Herman Heiligers’ HubCap II second and Ana Svensson’s Limelight third.

Each week, all of our divisional winners are in for a chance at the $500 prize courtesy of our wonderful Race Partner Concierge Traveller. This week, Derek McDonnell and Rogerio Blanc-Ramos from Applejack were our lucky winners presented the $500 prize. At the conclusion of the series, all divisional winners will then be in for the chance at the $5,000 major prize, again with thanks to our Race Partner Concierge Traveller.
