Banjo's Shoreline Crown Series Bellerive Regatta 2021 - Overall

by Jane Austin 14 Feb 03:20 PST 12-14 February 2021

Summer sailing was at its glorious best in Hobart for the final day of sailing in the Banjos Shoreline Crown Series Bellerive Regatta.

Midnight Rambler (Ed Psaltis) sailed an exceptional regatta winning the Racing Keelboat Division on IRC and defending its Tasmanian AMS Rating Championship from Fish Frenzy Whistler (Drew Latham) with five wins from seven races (nine points).

Race Officer, Steve Shield, had Race Six of the Racing Keelboat Group under way but pulled the pin on the race due to a changing breeze. Shield moved the race course up the river and set a new start line off the Casino. This proved an excellent move allowing the fleet two get two quick races in as a consistent sea-breeze filled in.

Heatwave (Mathew Keal) took out the PHS handicap on a countback from Fish Frenzy Whistler on 33.5 points. Madness, skippered by Gavin Adamson, won the unofficial Mumm 36 "world championship", a light-hearted but competitive battle between the Mumm 36 boats in the fleet, from Heatwave and Joint Custody (Joint Custody Syndicate). The Mumm 36 fleet was without Class stalwart Jeff Cordell who was unable to race B&G Advantage after experiencing major rig damage in the Launceston to Hobart race.

Masquerade (Tony Harman) took out the Tasmanian AMS Rating Champion in Performance Cruising Division One on 7 points from Ultimate Challenge (Peter Jenkins) and Cromarty Magellan (Richard Grant), both on 12 points. Detail First (Scott Broadby) continued his summer winning streak, winning the Tasmanian AMS Rating Championship for Performance Cruising Division Two on 10 points from Wings Three (Peter Haros) on 17 points and 42 degrees South (Mark Ballard) on 18 points.

On PHS handicap, Ultimate Challenge took out Division One in Performance Cruising (14 points) from Masquerade (16 points) and Rad (Brent McKay) on 20 points.

Bellerive Yacht Club team Twitch (Twitch Syndicate) won Division Two on PHS on 22 points from Wings Three on 27 points and Footloose (Stewart Geeves) on 28 points.

Craig Escott skippered CommBank to a win, on a countback, in Division Three from Pinta (Dan Ford) and Dynamo (Stephen Davidson), while Sundance (Don Bailey) took out Division Four.

Scores were tied in the Production Cruising Division with C'est Si Bon (Bill Batt) winning on a countback from Tiger One (Glenn Myler), both on 9 points.

SB20 Tasmanian title holder, Victorian Chris Dare, sailing Ambition with his son Lockie and Ben Lamb, won the SB20 one-design class on 10 points while Cook Your Own Dinner (Felicity Allison) took out the PHS handicap.

Off the Beach Race Officer Nick Hutton was impressed with the competitive young sailors in the Optimist fleet.

"We had perfect conditions for sailing which meant the younger kids in the fleet weren't in survival mode, they were calling tactics and piling on the pressure on the start line. We even put up two black flags just to settle the eager Optimist sailors down," said Hutton.

Stand out sailors were Eddie Reid and James Gough, (Beautiful Idiots), winning the 29er Class, Harry Gregory (Iki Moku) winning the Optimist Class, and Luca Groves and Sam Hooper (Seaya) taking out the International Cadets.
