Well done to Chris Bland and crew, who joins the high performing Monkey Business and David Ellis's The Stig's Audi Cousin in Melbourne as a 'winner 650'.
Racing in the mixed fleet keelboats, *Star managed a credible 3rd on line and 1st on corrected, racing against big graders such as a TP 47 and a Beneteau 50. http://orcv.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=blog&id=3611 Chris now plans to send Star to undergo an extensive IRC racing optimisation program (that's what keelboat owners call it, or in the sportsboats we call this 'applying for a certificate') and will be smoking some more big boys downwind! Great effort Chris!
