The BOM predicted 15 to 20 knot NE winds and this is pretty well what we got.
Bill on Divine Madness was first boat away and called for a Port course. He made good time down the first leg and was well clear of JVP and Roger on Jaguar who started 15 minutes later.
These 2 boats had a great start and the mid pack of Ripple, Happy Daze, Zingara and Trim made little impression on them.
The late starters did better as the wind freshened in the afternoon and they all came home strongly. This pack included Jenesis, Midnight Madness, Catalina, Seraya, Sentier, Endorfin.
Final results were:
First place; Bill and Vince on Divine Madness for their first win of the SAGS season.
Second place: JVP and Roger on Jaguar for their first podium finish for the season.
Third place: Jenesis, Michael assisted by Benny for their first SAGS podium finish for the season.
Meanwhile, back at the clubhouse, the winners of the Lucky Draw were Adrian and John.
Many thanks to the MBBC for their generous sponsorship.
