PHILIP Mann and Chris and Toby Clarke claimed the respective division one and two honours in race two of the Bendigo Yacht Club's Kimbolton Series at Lake Eppalock last Saturday.
In division one, Michael Anthony got away to a great start and was the first over the start line followed by Mann.
Approaching the first mark of the race, Anthony held a slight lead over Mann, until he made his way to the second mark and was overtaken by Mann.
Mann continued to hold his lead until the end of the race to win in an elapsed time of 1:09:59 and yardstick time of 1:24:49.
In division two, the hooter sounded and Chris and Toby Clarke started brilliantly to be first across the start line.
As the race started, Russell Denholm and Matthew Farrington both had to make a quick change of direction to avoid a collision with Doug Carswell.
As the fleet made its way to the first mark, Clarke held his lead and continued around it first, followed closely behind Brian McMahon.
Farrington was unlucky and had to retire just prior to the first mark due to tipping over and his mask falling apart.
As the race progressed, Clarke continued to hold his lead and claim the win, with McMahon and Peter Martin continuously swapping positions in second and third.
McMahon was able to beat Martin by one second and claim second position.
However, the tragic and unluckiest sailor of the day went to Mark Hawkins, who failed to finish the race, as he mistakenly went to the wrong side of the finishing mark.
