With 9 multihulls in attendance the 3rd Multihull Central Twilight race, also names the “Christmas Cruise” had some fantastic conditions with winds around 10-15 knots, very warm breeze and blue skies. This broke the fleet up across the harbour until winds dropped to almost nothing for one of the closest finishes yet!
The fleet saw some new vessels participate in this ever growing fleet, including a custom designed & built catamaran that has travelled all the way from France. This vessel is now heading south to Tasmania, although we hope to have them join us again for the final race in March.
The clear winner, crossing the line a full 15 minutes before the second boat, was Jim Sinclair on board “No Qualms” a Schionning 11.6, this vessel is also leading the series!
After the race the fleet headed back to the club house for a BBQ & Christmas Party along with marina tenants and local multihull owners.
Race 4 will be held on Friday the 17th of January 2014 and we hope that even more multihulls will be able to attend this unique and fun event.
