Sail-World.com : 18ft Skiffs Queen of the Harbour Race – Winner decided
18ft Skiffs Queen of the Harbour Race – Winner decided

'Yandoo too good in light air - 18ft Skiffs Queen of the Harbour Race'    Australian 18 Footers League ©

18ft Skiffs Queen of the Harbour Race - Annika Rose became the 18ft Skiffs’ Queen of the Harbour when she teamed with John Winning Jr., Andrew Hay and Tom Slingsby on Yandoo to take out the annual race on Sydney Harbour today.

Yandoo led from the first set of 3-buoy windward marks but had to withstand a race long challenge from Asko Appliances (James Dorron, Marcus Ashley-Jones, Jeronimo Harrison and Odette Rushton) before taking the victory by just six seconds.

Third place went to Fisher and Paykel (Grant Rollerson, Peter Nicholson, Niall Kinch and Sonya Hagarty), which was a further 3 minutes 16 seconds back.

Thurlow Fisher Lawyers (Dave O’Connor) was fourth, followed by Smeg (Nick Press) and De’Longhi-Rabbitohs (Jonathan Whitty).

The race was sailed in a light North East breeze which faded during the race.

Appliancesonline.com.au (Nathan Wilmot) and Thurlow Fisher Lawyers won the start at the pin end of the line then shared the battle for the lead with Yandoo, Asko Appliances and Mojo Wine (Andrew Divola) in the early stages of the race.

Yandoo edged away from the rest of the fleet down the first spinnaker run and held a 30 seconds margin over Asko Appliances at the bottom mark.

Fisher and Paykel had established a clear third place at the point ahead of Pure Blonde (Nick Daly), Appliancesonline.com.au, Thurlow Fisher Lawyers and De’Longhi-Rabbitohs.

Asko Appliances matched Yandoo up the next windward beat but Yandoo edged away again due to the difference in the 3-buoys rounding.

The three leaders had clearly established their positions by the end of the second lap where Yandoo was 1 minute 35 seconds ahead of Asko with Fisher and Paykel another 35 seconds back behind Asko.

As the breeze continued to drop it was a tough day for all teams.

Yandoo still held a 30 seconds lead at the final mark so Asko Appliances gybed inside the leader.

Spectators were compensated for the lack of speed with a really tight finish as Asko Appliances almost nailed Yandoo near the finish.

Next Sunday’s Race 11 of the Club Championship is the last race of the 2013-2014 Season.
