Brewer wins race

Sail into Majuro one week and take out line honors and first place on corrected time in the Mieco Beach Yacht Club the next! Quite a feat from skipper Tony Brewer, who is reportedly a keen club racer in his home town in New Zealand.

Seven boats took part in the blustery third race of the club’s season last Sunday, with lots of spectators gathering at the Weather Station to watch the pre-race maneuvers at 12:30pm.

On corrected time, the first five placings were all within eight minutes of each other, with second place going to Navi-Gator, skippered by Joe McCarthy, who had a squad of willing volunteers to help crew the boat to stardom.

Third place went to Aquila (Frans Nooij), fourth to Toucan (Tom Sauer, the winner of the previous two races), fifth to Pegasus (Gary Stephens), and sixth to Blue Moon (Rob Woollacott). The yacht Seal (Cary Evarts), had to retire from the race after a good start was spoiled by a seam splitting on the yacht’s mainsail.

The next race is tentatively planned to be held on Sunday, February 19 (watch this space), with the skipper’s meeting at the clubhouse (Marshall Islands Resort) on the Friday evening before.

On Tuesday evening, the club held its annual general meeting, with Richard Hickson being re-elected as commodore and Liz Rodick as vice commodore.

The next event on the club’s calendar will be its now regular monthly Tuesday Tales, which will be held at 5:30pm on February 7.
