A SMALL fleet braved Sunday’s chilly conditions for race seven of the South Gippsland Yacht Club’s Big 4 Holiday Park series.
The blustery northerly wind meant it was hard work for the sailors who took part but in the end everyone had a good sail and agreed that it had certainly been worth the effort of rigging boats and setting a course.
Despite the early enthusiasm however, there were no takers for race eight in the afternoon.
With gale force winds predicted at some stage it was probably the wisest choice.
Sailors weren’t too disappointed as there will be plenty of sailing coming up over Easter with six races scheduled over three days.
With the latest South Gippsland Yacht Club series completed, the results have again been dominated by the Kiely brothers.
Pete comfortably took out A Division in his Windrush catamaran and Matt dominated the other monohull sailors of B Division taking first place in five of the races.
Congratulations also go to junior Oscar Llewellyn on achieving third place while sailing in the main fleet with the seniors.
Big 4 Holiday Park Series Results:
A Division: 1st Pete Kiely, 2nd Rob McNair, 3rd Jake Lurati.
B Division: 1st Matt Kiely, 2nd Noel Owen, 3rd Oscar Llewellyn.
C Division: 1st Alana Lopez-Freeman, 2nd Vincent Trease, 3rd Jess Beachley.
Not so smooth sailing
