Sail-World.com : Voodoo takes third event in 2010 Appleton Estate E5.9 Traveller Series

Voodoo takes third event in 2010 Appleton Estate E5.9 Traveller Series

'Voodoo, winning crew at 2010 Appleton Estate E5.9 Marsden Cove Regatta - 2010 Appleton Estate E5.9 Marsden Cove Regatta'    Rob Gill

Voodoo (Simon Manning/Andy Robertson/Phil Quinn, RAYC, Auckland) took out the 2010 Appleton Estate Marsden Cove Elliott 5.9 Regatta at the weekend, beating Slam Dunk (Cam Horne, Ryan Houston, Hayden Whitburn, RAYC, Auckland) into second. Sailed in an at times blustery NW breeze the fleet sailed 10 races over two days.

The fleet launched on Saturday from Marsden Cove Marina in passing showers and with a gale warning broadcast. The breeze increased to a moderate NW as the fleet towed out towards the harbour entrance. OOD, Paddy Simms in consultation with the sailors, decided to turn around and set a course inside the harbour.

As the breeze increased the fleet sailed five races in what became at times challenging conditions and this lead to some damage in the fleet. In particular Zoot Allures (Dave Cochran, OYC, Whangerei) suffered a broken sidestay sending them home before the start of race 3 and ruining their regatta.

On day one, Voodoo scored 1,1,2,1,3 leaving them with a lead over Slam Dunk who scored 4,2,3,2,1.

Sunday saw a continuation of the passing showers but the first race started in a light westerly. Slam Dunk finished race six in second behind Zoot Allures and just ahead of Voodoo to close the points down. However Voodoo then scored three straight wins to clinch the series. Brzo (Nathan Williams, Auckland) came through to third overall, also winnning the final race of the day. Fourth was Hobo the Butcher (Rob Ward, OYC, Whangarei)

The ragatta was notable for several new sailors joining the class on various boats and the debut of Luxury Liner under new ownership.

In the overall 2010 Traveller Series rankings, Voodoo trails Slam Dunk, winner of the Opua event with two events to sail.
