The Port Macquarie Sailing Club's double header on Sunday consisted of race six of the spring series in the morning and the third club championship race in the afternoon.
A triangular course of port turns was set with the afternoon course being lengthened.
The gusty southerly breeze kept all the boats moving with a few finding too much wind at times and washing their sails.
The strong run-out tide had sailors using their tactics to make the best speed down the river and then trying to avoid the flow on the way back up but not find the mud.
In the morning race Tony Kuhn on Stella was first over the line to win on yardstick followed by Rob Barwick on Drift. The handicap result was reversed with Drift coming in two minutes ahead of Stella.
The monohulls' morning race was won on yardstick by Andrew Richards in Impulsive closely ahead of Terry Howard in Ratz and Steve Couch in LazyBuoy.
They were followed by Jamie & Joe Newton in Voyager, Stuart Symons & Liam Halmi in Elmo then Tony Walker in Deep Purple and Jane Cooper in Impetuous.
Deep Purple took the handicap win, and was followed by Impetuous, Elmo, Impulsive, Lazybuoy, Ratz and Voyager.
The junior's morning race was Bridgette Taylor & Caleb Bohlsen in Dorado.
The third club championship race for catamarans in the afternoon was won by Tony Kuhn on Stella.
Rohan Nosworthy in Beat had arrived to contest the monohulls' third club championship in the afternoon and proceeded to win on yardstick by an outstanding seven-minute margin.
He was followed by a tie between Elmo and Roger Shipton in Zazoo, then Ratz, Lazybuoy and Impetuous. Impetuous took the win on handicap then Elmo, Lazybuoy, Zazoo, Ratz and Beat. St Elmo did not finish but enjoyed the gusty conditions.
Bridgette Taylor & Simon Gandy in Dorado won the Junior's race by yardstick and handicap over Charlie Nosworthy in Vitamin C.
Next Sunday is Ted Kuhn Cup starting at 11am and 1pm with a BBQ lunch. Paul Robertson is rostered on duty.
