Sailors at the Wallagoot Lake Boat Club enjoyed two handicap start races on a perfect Autumn day on Saturday.

Ian Curtis big Dennis 500 trailer-sailor was given the headstart, and held on to win the race.

The Mosquito catamaran of Tony Hastings started last and flew through the field to claim second, just ahead of Terry Ubrihien's Nacra.

Unlucky to miss out on the podium was Luca Dorrough, making a much celebrated return as skipper on his scow Moth.

In Race Two, the wind eased giving the early starters the edge. Alan Holbrook's Sabre won, just nine seconds ahead of Mark Gebrand's Cool Cat, with Sian Morton's Sabre only 12 seconds back in third place.

The club's series races are now complete, with friendlies set for Easter Saturday and fun races to go ahead on April 27. Champions will be crowned at the presentation day on May 4.
