With the start boat in place at Burnside Spit, the 2019 Cruising and Power Yacht Committee of YWA (CPYC) State Time Trialling season was underway with 51 boats from four yacht clubs participating in the event, which was held on Saturday the 25th of May with many of the fleet returning to try their luck in a new season and a few new to the sport of time trialling but certainly not to the sport of boating like competitor number 120 ”Perie Banou II” Skippered by Jon Sanders and Navigator Mike Hulbert from Royal Perth Yacht Club under motor of course and at a nominated speed of 5knots gained a very respectable total points of 69 in her first event for this season. It was a really spectacular sight to see so many boats out on the Swan River on such a beautiful day and it’s great to see so many clubs competing in these events and making the competition more challenging. Congratulations to the winners on the day South of Perth Yacht Club boat “M&Ms” Skipper Michael Cook and Navigator Maria Cook with a score of 11pts on a countback and Least Points winners of the event. Equal second points win and Least Points also on a score of 11 went to Royal Perth Yacht Club boat “Cosmos” Skipper Terry Mullins and Navigator Sandra Mullins and South of Perth Yacht Club boat “Thanet” Skipper Guy Skinner and Navigator Richard Evans.
