Eveline at her best

Today Langkawi turned on some, as the late Capt Marty would have said: “champagne sailing weather”, for the much anticipated “Round Island” race.

With the wind starting at 17 knots from the NE rising to 20 knots from the ENE and then gradually abating, still leaving good airs for the finishing yachts, everyone has a truly memorable “champagne” day!

The early starters benefitted from stronger winds and some excellent times were recorded with Eveline providing the big highlight of the day by winning the White Sail and Classic Challenge Classes convincingly!

Team Hollywood again topped the Racing class with the fast elapsed time of two hours twenty three minutes.

The competition between Meraki and Char Chan in IRC1 was intense today with Meraki gaining top spot by only 25 seconds on corrected time!

‘MSA-MSN’ skippered by Muhammad Uzzair in the closely contested Sportboats class topped the scoring for the round island race adding to his two previous victories giving him a well-earned hat-trick!

In the multihull class the diminutive Fetz Ma trimaran skippered by Austrian Dr Gerhard Pils secured first place today over the much bigger catamaran Allegro helmed by Bob McIntyre.

Keith Miller’s Sade 2 reveled in the mix of ocean and harbor racing and scored a strong second place to Marikh in the Club class.
