The 2017 Festival of Sails was held over three days with the Passage Race followed by two races on each of the following days. The 11 yacht competing were blessed with calmer conditions than the previous weekends State Championships with.
In the passage race, the S80s benefitted with the South Easterly filling in with Skipjack finishing in under 7 hours. Flying Circus brought up the rear, only 25 minutes later after spending a lot of time in a wind hole off Werribee.
The next two days racing was very close and it wasn’t until the last race that the podium positions were decided. Mere seconds made all the difference with the top 5 yachts only seperated by 5 points. In the end, the podium was 1. Moonraker 2. Flying Circus 3. Skipjack
