The latest race in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Ocean Pointscore Series was the Sydney to Port Hacking Race (approx. 45.0nm round trip) last Saturday.

In the Two-Handed division, CYCA Director Jules Hall's J/99 Disko Trooper- Contender Sailcloth won the race on IRC and ORCi, while Andrew Butler's J/122E Rum Chaser won on PHS and is leading the PHS series.

Jules Hall from Disko Trooper- Contender Sailcloth commented, "interesting racing on Saturday. A classic building NE breeze. We were the second two-handed boat on the water at the Port Hacking turning mark (largely due to errors with kites on other boats approaching the mark), rounding just behind the Shearwater 57.

We had a good beat back, bouncing off the shore and swapping places with the two Sydney 36s (Salt Shaker and Philosopher), Rum Chaser (J/122E), and Crystal Cutter (Beneteau 40 - crewed). Through the Sydney Heads a few boat lengths behind Salt Shaker and Philosopher. Crystal Cutter is behind us. We lost a bit down the harbor due to a lack of practice sailing the A3.5 in 25 knots so should have been a couple of minutes closer at the finish. Managed to snag the win on IRC and ORCi! Plus, great news for newcomer Ian Smith on J/99 Jupiter finishing third on ORCi."
