The rainy weather cleared up on Wednesday 6 December allowing 12 monohulls and four catamarans to rig up to race in heat six of Lake Jindabyne Sailing Club’s 2017/18 Twilight series. Terry Lee and Lucas Blackmore-Lee manned the rescue boat. John Byrne set a starboard rounding course from the start boat at the Quarry mark. The sailors had to hurry to reach then start line in the light to medium strength south westerly breeze. Barney Davis made his usual great start, followed closely by Barry Denis while Tim Symons arrived just in time to cross the line. Andrew and Jake Kennedy missed the start and joined the three Hobie 17s partway down the first leg.
