Race 4 of the UNi-PRO Midweek Mariners Pursuit Race got under way in an 8-12 knot southerly last Wednesday. Somebody laid a red herring up near RMYS G mark; a few boats were caught out, went the wrong way and subsequently retired. First place went to Mistress (Rob Quick) followed by Matrix and Leilani.
In the Doctors of Northcote Spinnakers race, Tigris won on PHS, with Seaya in second and Rock N Roll in third. On AMS Vagrant once again took out first place, with Seaya in second and Xit Strategy in third.
Charlotte won the Half Tonne Challenge.
Thanks to Ian Guyett, Jim Lynch, James Tulloch, Lawson Xie, and Selwyn Stokes who ran the racing on Wednesday.
The Rundles Services Shield (Race 3 of the Edward Lumley Series) started in a building 10 knot southerly.
