Consistency Race 5

The strong unrelenting easterly winds kept spinnakers in the bag for most of the fleet from Hillarys Yacht Club contesting the fifth consistency race of the season last Sunday.
In division one, Perle flew their small spinnaker at each opportunity which paid off with a win from Whispering Jack (Bruce Bradford) and La Premiere (Gary and Julie Beeck). Surfer Rosa (Roric Smith) was fastest and Deckchairs Overboard (Neil and Wendy Harrison) pipped Perle for first on IRC by 3 seconds.
Blue Chip (Keith and Deborah Fisk) continued their winning form in division two with Volant (Emille Janssen, Kevin Meta, John Ball, Frank Hagemann) second and Sheer Magic (Tony Waymouth) third.
John Swift celebrated a first and fastest in division three on Salamander and remarkably Sensei (Brett and Lynda Bailey) tied with Tosca (Stuart Marks and Leigh Collins) for second place.
