Finally.. The last Championship race for the season..



                          Another lovely afternoon on the water.. chasing little boats with orange sails,   
                                         covering the beginning and end of the yachts' race..
                    ...which gives them a chance to get away with a few undetected "stuff ups"!


                                               Scott got out of the creek under his own steam..
                                    

                                                   while most others needed a helping hand..





as always we had competition..


the team on Tuan towered over us..


                                                          Immigrant took off in a racing start..

                                           
                                                   
                                          while the others followed at a more leisurely pace..




                                                                                                                                             

                                             you can feel the intense rivalry ... can't you...

                           
                                                        Doctor's Orders was a trifle late...


                                             ..  the dinghy fleet were doing their own thing ...

                                                starts, finishes and evan courses in between...

                                    that's right... Start, 1, 2, 1 Finish ... I get that..


                                                        Garth was sailing a solo race.


                                                         Jackson and Jack  (JJ) were a matching team...


                                             .........Scott was starting on a winning day.


                                     John was in the zone planning his match winning tactics...

                                                   .........maybe the hockey John...


                                  ..........the start line was fast and furious..


                                boats were going left, right and centre and evan starting back to front....


                                                       Steve and Morgan bravely flew a kite..


the scene was colourful..


                                                     Ray was chasing them down...


                                                          it was a fiery pursuit to the mark..


                                  .. then along came the tri.... from last to first in a few photos ....


                                            


                                                     ..cutting a swathe through the fleet .......


First around the mark...


                                                      ....... soon followed by Immigrant..


around the mark, into the afternoon sun and chasing the tri ...


                                                      and feeling sorry for the workers....


                                    Doctor's Orders headed to the finish line via a circuitous route....


.. many hulls , many directions


                                  
                                                             ..and finished...

                                
                                           Immigrant .. Club Championship winners...




then along came Diamonds ......





passing Tuan going out, as Solitaire headed to the finish ..




and with that ....


                                        we all packed up and headed homewards...
