Setting sail for the finish line

FRASER Coast catamaran sailors will take their crafts to Redcliffe for the Annual Humpy Bash this weekend.

Sailors will compete in at least four races at the Humpy Bong Yacht Club event, and all competitors hope they will return with a win.

Hervey Bay Sailing Club held the first two heats of its Club Championship last weekend, and A Class pair Clare Neeskens and Peter York dominated the races.

They each won one race and placed second in the other heat to hold a clear advantage over the field.

Monohull favourite Chris Barnes won both heats in his Laser in the Mayborough SC Championship.
