The final race of the Fisher & Paykel OCC RBC Interclub race was contested by 17 boats with 7 Russell boats and 8 from Opua. The race started with little wind, but picked up off Paihia as per the forecast. California Kiwi lead the OCC fleet, but some bad luck with a spinnaker gybe off Roberton cost them. Line Honours to Breeze-Bender RBC. 1st on handicap to Imp RBC 2nd to Overdraft OCC ad 3rd to Gambler OCC. Unfortunately, not good enough to return the trophy to its place above the OCC bar.
A tip for OCC boats next year, remember in racing in a team type event, it’s better to cover the opposition team, rather than your own.
Well done again to Russell Boating Club and thanks to very one for making it such a successful series.
