12ft places 2nd in first race of the 2011-12 season

The 12ft Skiff had its first race for the 2011-12 season last Saturday the 17th September at Lane Cove 12′ Skiff Club. With a big rig easterly breeze to battle with, at 10-12knots and a Handicap start, LCC lead the bunch out into the Parramatta River and was first down to the spinnaker drop mark at Drummoyne. Here the long break showed, with a snarl in the spinnaker drop. The spinnaker in the water allowed Gemmell Sails to go through. The rest of the day was spent dodging the heavy traffic, trying to get the 100m back to Gemmell Sail- to no avail. LCC finished with the second fastest time just behind them.
