Sail-World.com : MC38 Harbour Regatta - Emerging from the mist
MC38 Harbour Regatta - Emerging from the mist


'2013 MC38 Harbour Regatta'    McConaghy Boats

In the MC38 Harbour Regatta, a fleet of six emerged through the mist and rain of Sydney over the last weekend in June. The less than favourable weather conditions did not break the spirits of the competitors and the performance of the MC38s did not disappoint in the light conditions and as always created some very close fleet racing.

The breeze kept everyone guessing and saw the leader board constantly changing over the course of the weekend. Ross Hennessy's Ghost Rider took the day's first race, with Leslie Green's Ginger hot on their heels. John Bacon's Dark Star didn't have a very good start to the weekend after a DNF in the first race due to the time limit, but he turned things around quickly claiming their first win of the series in the second race.

With the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and Opera house, the MC38s spread across the harbour but still came together at the marks causing much excitement and seeing boats change from first position to sixth in a matter of seconds. Ghost Rider was the overnight leader, but with only five points separating them and Ginger in third place, pole position was still very much in reach.

The MC38 Harbour Regatta was the third event for the class and it is clear to see how much fun the owners and crew are having on and off the water. 'One of the wettest days sailing I've had in my 30 odd years on the water' said Howard Spencer, owner of Menace, 'Geeze still had fun, smiles and shivers for the entire Menace crew'.

Sunday saw a brief but welcome appearance from the sun with the breeze slightly picking up; Menace came out in fighting form, however it was Chris Hancock's Vino that climbed its way up the leader board. Ghost Rider fought hard to retain its place at the top with Dark Star trailing close behind, however Ghost Rider held its own and claimed its first Class victory.

The Cone of Silence sailed consistently well over the weekend with McConaghy MD Jono Morris at the helm 'It was fantastic sailing, some of the best racing I have ever done. We are so pleased to see all the owners and crew consistently enjoying the boats and the racing, it is very rewarding for all of us at McConaghy Boats'

With the Class enjoying another exciting event, everyone is very much looking forward to their own division at the 30th Anniversary Audi Hamilton Island Race week.
