It was a great day for the 19 entrants who took part in the Port Hacking Race – the seventh race of the series.
The crews made a start to the short offshore race in a building north-easterly breeze. With extremely warm temperatures the forecast strong winds filled in as expected. In the early part of the race as entrants exited Sydney Harbour and made their way south the 10-15 knot breeze consistently strengthened in the early afternoon where it stayed for the remainder of the day.
PHS saw Michael Smith’s Tempo take out first place with Steve Watson’s Ragtime in second followed by Ian Short’s TP52 Bush Paul Group.
IRC was led by Bush Paul Group with Julian Farren-Price’s About Time and Matthew Hanning’s Supernova in second and third respectively.
ORCi saw About Time take out the divisional win with Bush Paul Group close behind and Supernova in third.
