Georgia Racing


Georgia unassailable at Geelong

Friday, January 27, 2012

On Day 3 of Geelong Race Week, GEORGIA continued on her winning way with 2 firsts and a 4th, which put her in an unassailable position before the final race tomorrow.  Her series record is 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 4 and 1.  The 4th is a discard and so her total score is 7 , 10 points ahead of CALM and 11 points ahead of SHOGUN V, with LIVING DOLL on 4th. In the first race today, GEORGIA led the fleet around the course and was only just headed by the larger LIVING DOLL on the line. In Race 2, GEORGIA was caught up with other boats in the fleet and finished 4th. The big mover was TERRA FIRMA, which won the race.

In the third race, sailed in brisk wind, SHOGUN V led early but GEORGIA hung on well and on the final run took large chunks out of her lead to finish close enough to win the race. Sunday's race is therefore a formality as GEORGIA has won the regatta.
