Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club claims north coast series over Hillarys Yacht Club

THE final and deciding race day for the north coast series between Hillarys Yacht Club and Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club was cancelled due to the strong winds offshore on Sunday.

Instead, sailors retired to the clubhouse at Ocean Reef for celebratory drinks, lunch and a few tales of how Hillarys was going to come from behind to claim victory.

It wasn’t to be, with a comprehensive win to Ocean Reef over the eight races during the summer season in which they won each of the four race days and reclaimed the trophy held by Hillarys for the past four years.

Ocean Reef yachts topped each division, with Ian Campbell’s Missing Linck in division one and Alan Peacham’s Feelin Free division two, Frank Centa’s Etchell Leda (third, division one) and Geoff James’ Panach (second, division two) also placing.
