The second last race in the 2013/2014 Multihull Central Twilight Series saw the largest fleet yet with 12 boats out on the water running the course. The largest and most noticeable participant was the Orma 60 “Team Australia” skippered by Sean Langman. This beautiful and powerful trimaran shot through the fleet on the start line to cheers and applause from the other boats, to complete their 2 runs of the course lapping all but three boats twice!
Once again the weather was suburb with good winds from the south east and the rain staying away for the evening. The fleet headed back to the Multihull Central Club House in Rozelle Bay with a couple of the vessels anchoring in the protected bay. With a high handicap and having to go round a whole lap more than everybody else the Orma 60 wasn’t able to get a podium finish, with a Seawind 1160 taking out the winning position closely followed by the Farrier 47 & Schionning 13.4, the clear line honors winner was the Atlantic 48 “Resolute” skippered by Ken Gibson with his all female crew!
Of course these races are for all types of Multihulls and we had some new guests along with our regular fleet. A special mention for a brand new Schionning 1100 “Kilikina” who sailed down from Pittwater that day to participate and were second across the line only a minute behind the Atlantic 48. With the last race set for Friday the 14th of March we once again invite all multihull owners of all shapes and sizes to come and join in the fun. So far our scope of boats has included:
