Red Energy Takes The Double

Red energy sailed by Murray Press & Mark Muirhead put in a strong performance to win the 12 Foot Skiff ‘Parramatta River Championship’ ( Len Postill Memorial Trophy ), hosted by Abbotsford 12 Foot Skiff Sailing Club on Saturday the 11th November.  A building NE breeze greeted the fleet with 3rd rigs being the choice of the day. Red Energy jumped clear from the start leading Slippery Wen Wet & Sydney Sailmakers up the first work. After spinnakers were set Red Energy established a clear lead and were never headed to take the win with minutes to spare. They also took out the handicap trophy (Keith Tutt Memorial trophy ) run in conjunction with the scratch championship.

The fight for placings was a closer affair with Sydney Sailmakers (Cameron MacDonald & Brendan Jenkins) & LCC Asia Pacific (Jono Temple & Richard Jones) both overcoming rigging malfunctions to move through the fleet & getting past Slippery When Wet & Skoll, both sailing well early to take out 2nd & 3rd respectively. The flat waters around Abbotsford Sailing club & the building NE’er made for some great & fast sailing.
