EMU2 Race at Scarborough Yacht Club

by Chris Clark 11 Jul 15:10 BST 6 July 2019

The EMU 2 Race is a two-race series that takes place within Scarborough's South Bay. The trophy is sponsored by Fugro-EMU, a marine environmental services company carrying out marine geoconsulting research, and the races conducted each year in early summer.

In steady North Easterly winds, six competitors set out on the second of the two-race series. The winds provided fast reach sailing but did have the ability to complicate sailing when changing course. Run under SYC handicapping, the race and Series winner was 'Kassy' owned by Holder, Williams and Hutchinson.

Results:

1st - Kassy, a Hydro, owned by Holder, Williams and Hutchinson.
2nd - Dash, a Sadler 34, owned by Martin Donelly
3rd - Zeris, a Sonata, owned by Brian Sizer
There was one retirement.
