Another ORCV Stanley race done and dusted, with many of the boats using this race as their qualifier for the 2019 Rolex Sydney to Hobart.
The race with a bit of everything starting with 30+kn on the nose outside the Heads, then settled into mostly a reach/run in around 12-18kn along with a fair bit of rain.
Terrific racing between the three Beneteau First 40’s (Wicked, Bandit & Protagonist) with only a few boat lengths between them the whole. Congratulations to Bandit for slipping past Wicked in the last couple of miles to win the race-within-the-race.
Bandit, Ashley Trebilcock was second in IRC, followed by Mark Welsh’s Wicked, while AMS second went to Daniel Edwards’ recently launched White Noise. White Noise also came third on line honours.
Well done to all the SYC boat that participated in the 2019 Stanley Race. For full results click here.
