Round 3 of the KA Sails Victorian Moth Grand Prix was held at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club on Saturday 3rd December. Three races were sailed back to back with conditions ranging from 10-17 knots, with the breeze blowing offshore, making it ideal for Moth sailing. With nine boats on the beach we were set for a fantastic days racing.

Race one saw Leigh Dunstan first to the top mark, only to tack from the port lay line and drop off his foils, watching three boats foil past before there was enough wind to foil again. The rest of the race saw Andrew McDougall and Richard Jackson fight it out for first and second. The win went to Jackson seeing his first break though win in a Moth event, with second to McDougall and third to Dunstan.

Race two again saw Jackson and McDougall battling it out for first and second, this time McDougall taking first and Jackson second. Third place was hotly fought out between Dunstan, Sam England and Lochy Byrne, with Dunstan finding the pressure on the run to the finish.

Race three saw a carbon copy of the top three from race two with McDougall first to the line, in front of Jackson and Dunstan again in third.

After three rounds of the KA Sails Victorian Grand Prix Series McDougall is in first place overall, with Jackson and Dunstan in second and third respectively.

A special mention has to go out to Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club with their exceptional organisational skills and eagerness to accommodate our needs for the event. The Grand Prix now moves on to Geelong as part of the Geelong Festival of Sail in January.
