Heading into Harbour series second day a success for PCSC

THRILLS and spills were had by all last weekend at the Port Curtis Sailing Club for the second race day of the Head of the Harbour Series.

Excellent sailing conditions prevailed with a consistent 10-15 knot north to north-easterly breeze and blue skies creating drag race reaching conditions in the harbour.

The yacht fleet turned out good numbers with Miss Behaviour, Tuan, Doctor's Order, Wocket in my Pocket and Sonofabeach making a splash in the harbour.

The day's honours went to 'The A-Team', as happy crew member Lynne Campbell acclaimed in self-description, on board Brad and Maryke's Tuan who took out the race by 44 seconds on corrected time.

The dinghy fleet saw some new faces.

A huge mention must go to Matthew Eiser who took out his new Open Bic Class Dinghy for its first race.

The conditions made it tough for the newcomer but he proved his mettle with true grit and determination, learning the ropes of his twitchy new performance oriented boat and completing his first race.

Morgan Lewis continues to teach her father Steve the finer points of sail with the duo further extending their lead over their competitors in the series with two successful races.

This weekend all the sailing action heads north with the Capricornia Cruising Yacht Club's 2013 Round the Bay Race conducted around the Keppel Islands.

This highly coveted race attracts strong fleets full of high performance boats.

The PCSC has a record of good performance in the race to uphold so skippers and crews will be hungry for victory.

Look out next week for a full report and be sure to keep in touch with Marina Hobb's blog at pcscsailing-marina.blogspot.com/ for all the latest photos of local sailing action.
