Heat 3 AEG 3 Buoy Handicap Series for 18ft Skiffs .
Heat 3 AEG 3 Buoy Handicap Series for 18ft Skiffs provided another winner yesterday, and this time it was Mojo Wine. James Dooran, Matt Searle and Mike McKenzie worked out the downwind puzzle and romped away on the North side of the harbour to put his first bullet on his score sheet for this season.

Pedro Vozone, Sam Ellis, James Ellis used the Red windward turn mark to their advantage on the last lap to pip Tom Clout's Pure Blond on the finish line by two seconds. Thurlow Fisher Lawyers, Michael S Coxon, Dave O'Connor and Trent Barnabas have now moved into first place on the AEG Leaderboard with a solid fifth place yesterday. Gotta luv it 7 dropped its new big rig in, and showed pace and height to burn but the Scratch handicap White turn marks proved to be taxing in the flakey NE breeze.

HK Raceweek 2017- sunshine, breeze, fog (all of them)
Race day 23 at HK Raceweek was like sailing in Melbourne. Four seasons in the same day. The forecast for the morning was for a light breeze at first and that’s precisely what it was – but a little too light to put it mildly. RO Barry Truhol said shortly before 1000hrs, 'we are sat in the middle of Stanley Bay; Round Island zero breeze, zero knots; Stanley Bay, zero breeze, zero knots; out towards Tai Tam Bay zero breeze, zero knots.
