This weekend the Short Ocean Pointscore race was conducted by the Middle Harbour Yacht Club with 25 entrants making the start line. With clear skies and warm weather it was perfect conditions for a NE breeze to fill in around Sydney. With late storms and unpredictable weather forecast for the afternoon, the race committee were able to get the program completed with great timing and without any concerns.
The results were dominated by two teams across all ratings. After having an early retirement from the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race Gordon Ketelbey’s Zen is back to prove what his boat can achieve by taking first place in IRC Div1, PHS Div1 and ORCi. Jack Stening’s Stormaway was then first in IRC Div2 and PHS Div2.
With three races left in the series the overall points are getting tight with some divisional podium positions only separated by a couple of points.
