Race 1 of the Troubleshooters Jo Johanessen, Helly Hansen Dennis Livingston AMS and Horizon Sails Spinnaker Series I was held in good breeze.
Astarte won the Jo Johanessen, walking away with a great goody bag from Troubleshooters, and Leilani scored the bottle of wine for best start on 3 seconds. Portofino took home a base layer thermal from Helly Hansen for the Dennis Livingston AMS. The 6 pack of beer and the Horizon Sails cooler bag went to White Swan for Spinnaker PHS.
The Banks Group prize pack for 4th fastest elapsed time went to Portofino with a time of 36:14. The Mountain Goat of the Day award was shared between the spinnaker fleet for being eager to get across the start line.
There were 34 boats on the water. Click here for Wednesday night results.
There was no RMYS racing on Saturday due to the Melbourne Cup weekend. The ORCV Melbourne to Portland race was also cancelled due to a gale warning.
The Classic Yacht Regatta also took place over the weekend at RYCV, with the top 3 spots going to Frances, Pastime II and Mercedes III. Dingo, Snow Goose and Windward II all represented RMYS at the regatta.
Almost 130 boats have battled cold and blustery conditions on Lake Hume for Albury Wodonga Yacht Club's 'Sail Country' event as part of the Victorian Dinghy Championships.
Albury-Wodonga Yacht Club spokeswoman Mary-Anne Scully said despite the rain clearing on Saturday, it was tough sailing for the competitors in shifting winds.
“It was an outstanding turnout and despite the tough conditions we didn’t really have any issues,” she said.
“We have racing for the juniors to the elite with Olympian Oli Tweddell competing on both days.
“There are boats here from Melbourne and Sydney and we even had people registering right up until the last day.
“At the start of all of this we were hoping for 60 boats but we have more than doubled that and now the Victorian Institute of Sport and state squad are going to stay and train for a couple of extra days as well.”
