Day two of the 2014 Club Marine/Lexus Lincoln Regatta Week took place today with a long race south around Taylors Island then north around Boston Island before finishing in Boston Bay in front of the Port Lincoln Yacht Club.

Secret Men’s Business skippered by Geoff Boettcher got out to an early lead but had a lot of time to gain over his competitors to ensure a victory on IRC.

Closely following was Fresh skippered by David Buckland who sailed a great race and Andrew Corletto’s Shining Sea, which took out the IRC race win.


David Buckland praised the traditional Lincoln Week long race elaborating on how local knowledge plays a strong role and how Fresh is planning on finishing the regatta strongly.

'We snuck around a few rocks a bit quicker than the other blokes because we know where they are and that helped a lot.

'We’re going to come home with a rush, we’ll just get it together for the last two windward/leeward’s on Thursday and smash it' Mr Buckland said.

Mike Welsh’s Wicked and Andrew Saies’ Two True both had good races finishing second and third on IRC respectively.

In division two, Paul Bull’s Peer Gynt was dominant again, with another IRC win, however struggled on AMS and PHS where the standings were a little more competitive.

In the cruising division Tanqueray skippered by Paul Richards took the race win just ahead of Richard Harries’ Julia and David Smallacombe’s Steeplejack who were second and third Event Website
