Strong Sou-Wester for Race one of Land Rover Winter Series

Land Rover Winter Series 2014 - Competitors in Race one of the Land Rover Winter Series 2014, conducted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, were given a treat – strong south westerly breeze which had yachts and spinnakers flying on Sydney Harbour.

'It was a lot of fun,' said Bob Steel, owner of Quest, winner of Division A1. 'There was a bit of breeze and we hung in there and got the job done.'

'Based on our handicap we set out to try and catch others in our division – Duende had 18 minutes on us and Swish had 13. Once we caught them, we focussed on making sure the others stayed behind us.

'We had good spinnaker runs and kept concentrating on what we were doing rather than where our competition was – we had a bit on,' Steel added laughing. 'You never win the first race of the season – today was an aberration – we’ll be back to normal next week.'

Swish (Steven Proud) placed second to Quest with Duende (Damien Parkes) third.

Race Officer Steve Kidson got the fleet of 103 away on time in a 23 knot sou’wester that gusted up to 27 knots shortly after the start. By 12.30pm, competitors were passing through the gate and the breeze had settled to 20 knots.

And what a difference a day makes weather wise. Yesterday’s rain cleared to provide a picture perfect sunny winter’s day with the mercury nudging 19C, but it would have felt colder given the wind chill factor.

Beneteaus relish in big breezes so it was no surprise that this design of yacht dominated the podium places today. In Division C, Ted Tooher’s Beneteau 47.7 Chancellor won from Morgan Rogers’ Beneteau 40.7 Wave Sweeper with Pacific Sailing School’s Salona 45 Zora third.

'It was a tough race,' Tooher said this afternoon. 'We had some lucky breaks. The breeze hit 25 knots at one stage and the boat just excelled. The breeze gave us an advantage and we elected not to use our spinnaker – just the main, jib and one reef.

'We are using the Winter Series to break in new crew and develop them for the Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race – today was a great test.'

Tooher was also the lucky winner of the Range Rover Evoque weekly drive. 'It’s a great feeling,' he added.

Wave Sweeper’s Morgan Rogers was also another not to fly a spinnaker. 'We had a fair bit of separation from our divisional competitors at the start. It was nice to get out in a good breeze.

'We had to ensure we sailed the right course as everyone was following us. Some of the boats caught us on the second leg heading towards the Shark Island mark, but there was enough breeze to stay ahead of the crowd.

'We blew a baton on the number three sail which made it difficult to control the boat. We made sure we kept the boat in one piece so that we can compete in the rest of the series,' Rogers added.


The colourful crew onboard John and Kim Clinton’s Beneteau Oceanis 50 Holy Cow! were crowned Division J1 winners from Hanni (Mike Champion) and Marloo (George Girdis).

'The conditions were perfect for our boat today – we’re big and heavy with our cruising set-up. The two coffee machines, fridge and freezer weigh us down and make us the slowest boat out there,' Kim Clinton said.

'We’ve made up for our appalling start to the season (where we finished last in the Ladies Day race) but it is the wrong end of the season for this (win) to happen. There was some discussion this morning as to whether we should put a reef in the mainsail or not and I managed to convince John that it was a good idea because we definitely needed it.

'It was just beautiful in the sun. We were in a good position from the start and didn’t lose the breeze all day. We had clear air which was a bonus and there was lots of reaching. The grinders worked hard – we had to swap them halfway through and Shonie (the Clintons dog) slept through the whole thing!,' Kim added.

Glenn Crane’s Dufour 40 Lahara II, winner of Division J2, was the lucky recipient of the Noakes Group Lift and Stand Package.

Other divisional winners today were: Division A2 - Kirribilli (Andrew Chapman); Division B – Outlaw (Alan and Tom Quick); Division D – Soundtrack (John Amos); Division E – Bandit (Kevin and Warwick Nixon); Division F – Mortgage Choice Rhumba (Burke, Carr and Cook); Division G – Itchy (Will Northam and Jamie Watson); Division K – Gusto (Phillip Denison)

The Land Rover Winter Series pointscore continues next Sunday, 11 May. Block entries for the season will be accepted up until 12 noon, Thursday 25 May with casual entries being accepted throughout the season.
