12ft places 5th at the Lane Cove Inter-Club Regatta

LCC got away well – 2nd off the line, holding this position behind Mersk Shipping to the entry of Parramatta River, where a tangle in the tight tacking saw LCC fall to 3rd place.
By the second mark they had regained 2nd place, behind Gemmell Sails, closely followed by Mersk Shipping and Dimension Polyant.
Down the long run to Drummoyne in this order, then the long way back to Kerosene Bay, passed by Mersk, and then passing them back on the return run. Final work to the top mark, LCC fell to the bottom of a shift, dropping them behind Mersk and Dimension Polyant, and allowing Gemmell Sails a bit of a break on these 3 boats.
To the final wing mark, LCC just behind Dimension, both passing Mersk, at the gybe LCC managed to get inside Dimension to head for the finish back in 2nd place.
With the wind dying out, Gemmell Sails was far enough ahead to take the win, Garde jumped from 8th to 2nd and both Dimension Polyant and Mersk got past LCC in the calm, leaving LCC finishing in 5th place.
