Day two of the Farr 40 One Design Trophy took place on glorious Pittwater and Tom Quick and the Outlaws have done it again. The team were placed deeply after yesterday's three races offshore and they hit the water running today with three bullets and a second place to win the regatta.

This is the third pointscore regatta win for Outlaw this season and Skipper Tom Quick was relieved the team pulled it together today. "It was a weekend of ups and downs, yesterday in particular. We were over in the first race, had a mark rounding episode and a spinnaker drop incident. We were pretty deep after the first two races and knew we had to try and have a clear run of wins to be in the mix today".

New to the Outlaw crew is Trimmer and Volvo sailor Rob Greenalgh. Quick complimented his crew, "It was great having a new trimmer on board and the rest of the crew were awesome. We had very clean racing today and everyone did a great job. David Chapman called very good tactics and the trimmers did really well changing gears with the wind strength, change and direction. It's a very tricky racecourse".

The last Farr 40 regatta for 2018 will be hosted by Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club on 1 and 2 December 2018 and Quick is looking forward to it. "Newcastle was our toughest regatta last year, so we are aiming for a good one this time and are looking forward to enjoying the Newcastle hospitality".

Gordon Ketelbey was unable to sail this weekend and appointed Good Form Owner Joe de Kock from Newcastle as substitute helmsman. The Zen crew had another consistent regatta placing them on the podium in second place.

Double Black was unable to hold onto their lead from yesterday and it was close, but no cigar for the Victorians dropping back to third place. Skipper Rob Pitts laughed, "We had such a great day yesterday and maybe we were feeling a little confident going into today. We held the lead for the majority of the first race and somehow managed to come third and a deep seventh place in race six shattered our dreams of winning our first Farr 40 regatta".

The Farr 40 Class would like to thank Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club for their superb hospitality and Steve Merrington and the wonderful volunteers on the start boat without whom, successful regattas like this are not possible. Special thanks also to Carl Russett and the Windy Too team and Joachim Fluhrer, Tommy Spithill and the crew aboard Harlequin for competing with us this weekend.
