TAKING IT EASY: Gidget racing in Regatta Club's Twilight series.

Friday night was another Winter Twilight race at Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club and a good size fleet turned out to play.

A tight start with a bit of banter between the competitors entertained the spectators and Blase’, had an early lead, but was eventually over taken by the supercharged Spider 22, C Bomb. Meanwhile the rest of the fleet had a close contest.

Handicap winner was Gidget, skippered by Valeria Sanders with Ben and Krickle as crew and 1st over the finish line was C Bomb skippered by Harry Cooper. Great to see a new yacht out, Blase’, skippered by Ben Kelsey, crew by Alex Blacker, young Mitch and Luke Stevens.

After sailing  it was ‘Big Jims Roast House’ in full swing with 50 fantastic, 3 course meals coming out of the kitchen with a fantastic buzz in the dining room. Awesome effort from all the volunteers who helped. The club is very lucky to have such people in the club to take on these events. Next event is on Friday, September 14.
