Safe hits – Warriors: Georgia Hood, Jenna VISIT US ONLINE borderwatch.com.au Sandrine shows strength SANDRINE has yet again shown her strength, taking both line honours and class basic handicap in the Port MacDonnell Sailing Club’s two races last weekend. Four boats started the fi rst race in a freshening south-east breeze. Mirage and Sherwin Road tacked early after crossing the line, vying to be fi rst through the mid-course gate but by the third leg the big Noelex yachts of Sandrine and Sherwin Road were making easy work of it downwind under spinnaker. The experienced crew of Chris Lynch, Laurie Dacy and Craig Smith took Sandrine across the line ahead of Sherwin Road’s David Carlyle, Brad Mann and guest sailor Nick from the Clayton Bay Boat Club. The crew of Mack Ferguson, Peter Smart and Craig Mullan brought Papillon home third ahead of Dave Evans, Kirsten Graf and Damien McMahon aboard Mirage. In the club handicap Mirage fi nished fi rst followed by Papillon, Sherwin Road and Sandrine, while in the class basic handicap Sandrine took the honours from Papillon, Sherwin Road and Mirage. The breeze strengthened for the second race and the Bass Strait rollers made their presence felt. The start was close run between Mirage and Sandrine but the latter dominated every lap, hitting close to 10 knots under spinnaker. Sandrine took the honours from Sherwin Road, with Papillon just fi nishing in front of Mirage for third. On class basic handicap Sandrine again took the honours from Papillon and Mirage, with Sherwin Road coming home in fourth. Racing continues on December 7. DOMINANT: Sandrine took advantage of the blustery conditions on the weekend, reaching speeds up to 10 knots under spinnaker, to ensure line honours and class basic handicap victories in the Port MacDonnell Sailing Club season races. Archers met with weather decisions GUSTY conditions complicated the Blue Lake Archers event at Corriedale Park last weekend. In light of the prevailing conditions, the archers present wisely switched to the default 50 metre 90 arrow Melbourne event from the scheduled arduous 144 arrow competition that would have started at 70 metres. The practice range was again busy with trainee archers under the guidance of Garry Jacques, beginner practice was kept to short ranges where the effect of wind was minimised. On the main range the small fi eld of three archers found there was occasional respite from the wind gusts and reasonable scores were eventually recorded. Ben Kilsby has proved a useful archer in windy conditions before and proved so again on the day improving his personal best by one point on the way to a handy 40 point winning margin over Phil Tremelling. Indoor archery is scheduled for tomorrow night at the St Martins College Hall, starting at 7.30pm and outdoor archery continues at Corriedale Park on Sunday at 12.30pm Melbourne outdoor round: Ben Kilsby 917 (off the bow 802); Phil Tremelling 877 ( 844); Graham Lock 870 (820).
