Sail-World.com : For 24 Hours - just you, your mates and Lake Macquarie

For 24 Hours - just you, your mates and Lake Macquarie

'A heavy squall hit final competitors in the last hours of the Heaven Can Wait 24-hour yacht race on Lake Macquarie, Sunday 2 October 2011.'    Greg Dickins    Click Here to view large photo

The sixth annual Heaven Can Wait 24 Hour Race lived up to its reputation, with heavy winds and driving rain producing particularly testing conditions for the sailors in the second part of the race.

Bob Cowan’s Stealthy, the Stealth 8 sports boat this year skippered by World Volunteer of the Year Michael Cowan, sailed a teeth chattering 137.84 nautical miles, completing more than four laps of the Lake Macquarie course. Stealthy managed to sail to a four mile lead over Alyn Ovenden’s Adam Radford 52 Let’s go.

This was the second line honours win for Stealthy; she took the gun back in 2007.

After a hot shower Cowan was smiling. ‘Probably the toughest 24 hour race we’ve sailed. Another Team effort. It was a very wet ride, so much so that one auto-inflate life jacket inflated when its wearer was climbing into a bunk for a rest.

'The Specialist crew position 'Chief Beer Can Opener' proved critical in the last 30 mins of the race and it seems that looking forward to his bounty was our secret weapon' joked Cowan. 'We are looking forward to 2012 when we figure the sun will shine.’

In third place on the water was Alex Barnett’s Excalibur ahead of Ian ‘Nipper’ Henderson Mount Gay 30 Dora Creek Workers Terrar Too.

Fourth was the current HCW Virtual Race leader, David Rowe’s Hanse 375 Granny Jen.

On handicap Let’s Go was the division one winner from Terrar Too and Excalibur.

In Division 2 all the boats that completed the race, had started on their fourth lap by Sunday noontime, a mighty achievement in the conditions.

A brilliant effort from Brisbane sailor Charles Baker, who led his Queensland team to a line honours victory on their little Spider 22 Baker’s Dough, ahead of RMYCT Sailing Captain Mel Steiner and his Catalina 320, Emmenar. Third was Andrew Grover’s Jutson 30, Bindaroo.

Baker’s Dough was the handicap winner from Emmenar with Jeffrey Payne’s Radford 10.9 Serein third.

Charlie Baker was smiling when he came ashore. ‘We’ve enjoyed this trip south enormously and we have wanted to do this race since year one. This year we got out act together. We had a big night on Friday night, the Toronto locals lead us astray and we followed that with a very challenging 24 Hours, so we desperately need a big sleep tonight before heading home.'

Three yachts, Stealthy, Terrar Two and Heaven Can Wait Yacht Club's Vice Commodore Mark Cherrington’s Van de Stadt 34 Windchaser, have not only sailed in all six 24 Hours races but have managed to complete the race each year.

Dripping wet, once in the shelter of the Race Office Cherrington commented 'It was a war of attrition this year. The squalls just kept coming though. But our crew says they are SO looking forward to next year - the weather has to be better.’

Results below include Team Trophy Results

The seventh annual Heaven Can Wait 24 Hour and One Lap Dash will be again on the October Long Weekend in September 2012, well part of it at least.(The Labour Day holiday will actually be on Monday October 1st 2012)

The Saturday morning race start will be off Toronto on September 29th at 11am and the 24 Hour race will finish on Sunday 30th September at noon.
