Last week was Race 1 of the Troubleshooters Available Jo Johannesen Twilight Pursuit, the Helly Hansen Dennis Livingston AMS Trophy, and the Horizon Sails Spinnaker Series. A total of 35 boats raced across the pursuit and spinnaker fleets.
Cloud Nine took out the pursuit race, while Ellipse won the Dennis Livingston AMS prize. The Best Start wine went to Bushido for a perfect start. The Banks Group Elapsed Time Award was won by Matrix for the fastest elapsed time of 49:21.
In the spinnaker race, Silhouette won the AMS prize, Matador won IRC and White Swan took out PHS.
The Mountain Goat of the Day was awarded to Mrs Overnewton, for hoisting the spinnaker halyard with no spinnaker attached!

Primitive Cool was the only RMYS entrant in the ORCV Melbourne to Stanley Race fleet of 17, which started at 2330 on Friday night. Addiction is still unfortunately out of the water for repairs. Primitive Cool was gunning to break the race record, and needed to be at Stanley by 1406 on Saturday to do so. Unfortunately the winds were not as kind as they hoped, and they took out line honours at 1537. Congratulations to the PC team for such a great run.
A full report and results (subject to protest) can be found on the ORCV website.
Inside Port Phillip, RYCV conducted the Palliser Trophy, which is a long race from Williamstown to Mornington. No RMYS yachts competed.
The Classics Cup Regatta was also held at RYCV, with RMYS yachts Warringa and Dingo having a very successful few days. Please see the separate article for the full story.
