Business house sailing series hits the spot

Juliet Abbott is hailing the first edition of the Oddies Marine Business house sailing series a success following its conclusion on Friday.

The Waikawa Boating Club rear-commodore said: “All the business crews had a fabulous time.

“They were doing everything from helming to the rope work.

“They are all keen to be involved next year, with more surely joining.”

The series went down to the wire, with Vining Marine on the yacht Playwright winning the final race ahead of Acquiesce, crewed by the Marlborough District Council.

That second place finish was enough to keep MDC at the head of the series standings though, edging Vining Marine by one point.

They did well to hold on to second place in Friday’s race when bigger boats closed in on Acquiesce as it neared the finish line.

Earlier in the race they had passed five boats to move into second place.

The series was implemented to get more people into sailing and many in the teams were new to the sport, including Vicki Baker of Harcourts Blenheim, who placed third on Friday.

“It is a wee bit of competition without being stressful,” she said afterwards of the four-race series.

Saint Clair Wines placed third in the series, tied on 10 points with Vining Marine.
