Wednesday 3 February
Race 5 of the Troubleshooters LA Nangle, Horizon Sails Twilight and the KISS Printing AMS Twilight series was held in a fresh 22+ knot southerly.
Portofino won the Troubleshooters pursuit race, with Ellipse in second and Sea Eagle third.
Portofino also won the Henri Lloyd Gear Bag in the KISS Printing AMS race.
Best Start on 3 seconds was Blue Horizons, and the Banks Group award for the 12th fastest elapsed time went to Justine and Revenge won the Tonners.
Mountain Goat of the Day was awarded to Matador for wiping out in record time after their kite hoist.
There is now quite a collection of prizes and glasses at the Sailing Coordinator’s desk – please do drop by and collect your goodies if you missed out on the night.

Save the Date
In February 2017 the RMYS Cruising group are planning a month’s cruise south to beautiful Tassie.
Three boats have already booked in for this great cruise as it’s a great opportunity to cruise safely in company across Bass Strait to Hobart with experienced fellow sailors to assist with passage and navigation planning.
The group expect to take one week to cruise to Hobart, then spend two weeks exploring the d’Entrecasteaux channel and surrounds, and then take a week to cruise back to Melbourne. If you would like to register your interest or have any queries, please contact Pat Milwright on firstname.lastname@example.org
