Sail-World.com : King Island hospitality welcomes in 2013 fleet
King Island hospitality welcomes in 2013 fleet


'The Scarlet Runner crew celebrates at the King Island Boat Club - ORCV Melbourne to King Island'    Mark Seager
As presentations were taking place for the King Island Race, Grassy Harbour looked like a pane of glass glinting in the Sunday morning sun. The final results were in - finally. No thanks to the wind!

This year's race got off to a reasonably swift start, with crews reporting a quick trip out of past the heads.

That was where the winds pretty much gave way to a consistent wave of calm. Scarlet Runner had the speed to catch the initial wind, but the rest of the fleet missed out and had no chance of catching up.

The race committee had a long wait, but reported everyone safe and well, either in Grassy or motoring their way back to Melbourne, eXtasea the only boat to have any problems - what appears to be a seizing engine.



As for those docked at the King Island Boat Club, Mark Seager says the locals outdid themselves with the reception they have provided our crews.

'The King Island Boat Club Official have informed me that the crews/horses have been well watered and fed to the point of eating them out of house and home,' he said.
