Foreign Affair and Selkie win Sharp EIT Monday Twilight Series Spring Pointscores

Foreign Affair (Matt Wilkinson) and Selkie (Tony Booth) claimed the Division 1 and Division 2 Spring Pointscores respectively in the 2021-22 Sharp EIT Monday Twilight Series.

8-10 knots of breeze from the NE gave the fleet something to play with in the final race of the year, with 23 boats on the start line across the two divisions.

Darryl Hodgkinson’s Carkeek 40 Victoire was first across the line in Division 1, followed by Vamp (Leander Klohs) and CYCA Commodore Noel Cornish’s Farr 40 Indi.

Matt Wilkinson’s Farr 30 Foreign Affair took the overall win from Victoire and Vamp, to claim the Spring Pointscore by just one point. Greg Mason’s Davidson 37 Sine Wave and Phil Herscovics’ Sydney 38 Shine On were joint second in the Pointscore.

Bradley Hastings’ Melges 24 Roger That took out the Race 7 line and overall honours in Division 2, followed by the Cavalier 350SL Superfine (George Waldthausen) and the Elan E5 Tula (Ivan Resnekov).

Tony Booth’s J920 Selkie cruised to the Spring Pointscore win, five points clear of Superfine. Bob Penty’s Beneteau Oceanis 41 Great White finished third overall in the Pointscore, having taken out two wins and a second place from the first four Pointscore races.

The Sharp EIT Monday Twilight Series returns on 17 January, with the first race of the Summer Pointscore.
