Racing at the One Sail Melges 24 NSW State Titles started at 5pm on Friday afternoon, in cloudy overcast conditions, SSE five to ten knots, after two races boats returned to the dock at 8pm. Crews mingled on the Deck of the Yacht Club overlooking Lake Macquarie assessing their trials and tribulations on the racecourse.

Chris Links Northshore Marine left wondering in race one when they had just crossed Dave Bull Jester for the lead on the final run only to finish the wrong side of the boat and have to sail back to a fourth place. Jester was in their own world of pain after leading the race their kite halyard knot came undone metres before the finish line, Jester recovered quickly to claim the win only eighty three seconds ahead of the last boat in the fleet. Hat’s off to PRO Russell Cummings and the race recording the results.

Heath Walters sailing Amigos for the regatta, breaking in new local crew member AJ Millington for the regular team took a race to wake up but where never headed in race two leading from the start, Harley Walters calling tactics.

Leading the regatta heading into day two, after consistent racing and on five points is the Nixon family Accru, Damian Huon Huey II second on eight points and Gary Shanks Outrage Us, Amigos and Northshore Marine all on nine points for third.
