Below is the top pic of the race 4 fleet. Thanks go to the skipper of Mercedes III for his timely prompting to his crew to grab this image of Acrospire III as she passed them by. Pity those who didn’t see the real thing. Acrospire III racing with lee gunnel down under full sail. Say no more.

Special congratulations goes to the 16 classics who started in the Race 4 fleet of the Classic’s 2019 Winter Series.

Congratulations to Col anderson and his team for bringing Acrospire III home for her Race 4 win. No doubt about it Race 4 conditions gave her the opportunity to show how she thrilled the 1920’s racing scene.

Sail of the day goes to Laurent Giles Trekka class Manuka Rere under the helm of Cam Smith. Holding off the fleet in those light conditions was no accident. It was concentration on her beating in the light wind conditions and her shy kite reaching management hat allowed to fleet to watch the smallest waterline classic of the Race 4 fleet show, the forerunner of the JOG racing scene, a Honourable mention goes to Zephyr. Her brilliant after the second rounding mark R4 had her in contention for line honours. Anne Batson, Kath Solly and Pete Jerebek had Zephyr at perfect pitch. All up across the fleet every classic was a winner.

A Race 4 story plus results with series aggregate and Marie Louis III consistency aggregates plus how the fleet performed on corrected elapsed time will be published later.
