The race was a real chaser with a fast course, flat water, a long starboard beat and a Kangaroo Santa hopping from boat to boat with treats. Those not distracted and crossing the finish line the quickest were:-.
1st Sundara - Jon and Annie Storm (1 hr 18min 58 Sec)
2nd Tub Thumper - G . Heard and A. Creed
3rd. Sanjuro - Keith Ross
4th Messin About - Paul Copeland

I expect First Light - Andrew Weber to be the winner of the most decorated boat and crew that got into the Christmas atmosphere but still waiting for confirmation from the fishing charter boat pics to give the hawk eye verdict . Great work First Light
The Deck after the race was buzzing. Commodore Graeme Alexander said "it does not get any better" whilst he enjoyed craning his Etchell with a XXXX Gold, Live Music and his crew swimming. Vice Commodore Sheryl Schumacher was as equally excited with her new Mooring and the live music.
MYC will claim The Ronstan Band as their own with Tim and Tony Melville making up half the band. There was no doubt they are officially the best ever Live Deck band in the World. It was half expected Morn Pen resident James Reyne to join them when singing "Reckless". Most stayed and danced to the music way after sailing on such a brilliant balmy evening.

Thank You Especially to Greta Karay - Our secret Santa and Kangaroo. Greta designed and made the Kangaroo suit as part of her RMIT studies and I would vote this the best and coolest Kangaroo suit ever made Greta was absolutely fantastic playing the role and I think all will agree made the race and night really special.
It was a truly great finish to 2015 Twilight Sailing.
