One Ton Revisited racing report

 

 

The second 20-mile Olympic course race of the One Ton Revisited series produced another classic day on the inner-Hauraki Gulf on Tuesday with sunshine and fair breezes capped by a Rainbow.

 

When not racing, the classic ocean racers are docked in the Auckland Stopover Race Village and can be viewed by the public.

 

Chris Bouzaid’s recently restored former One Ton Cup winner Rainbow II was in her element and won by nearly seven minutes on corrected time to increase her lead on overall points. The 36-footer was always a light airs flyer and appears to have lost none of that Sparkman & Stephens pedigree during her complete restoration in the Silverdale yard of Wayne Olsen’s Horizon Boats.

 

Bernard Hyde’s Farr 40 Pacific Sundance took line honours for the third race in a row, crossing the line more than 10m clear of the second-placed Lidgard design Result skippered by Bevan Hill.

 

As in previous races, she was unable to put enough time on the rest of the fleet around the six-leg course to make an impression on handicap. Behind Rainbow it was a real tussle for top places.

 

The Farr 36 Revolution campaigned by Tony Wallis and Max Cossey finished second on corrected time, just two seconds ahead of Kevin Kelley’s 34-foot Lidgard design Impact.

 

The series resumes on Thursday with the all-important, double-points, 35-mile Gulf Race before the 1.5 points, 25-mile finale on Saturday.
