Another perfect day greeted sailors at the Wallagoot Lake Boat Club on Saturday.

A dozen boats lined up for two handicap-start races in warm weather, with a steady, light south-easterly wind.

Winner of both races was Terry Ubrihien, on his new Nacra catamaran. The sleek boat started near-last and overtook everyone to win.

Ava Peterson sailed her Sabre well, completing both races and won the second race, until it was revealed she jumped the start and a minute was added to her race time. It was still a great experience for her to lead the fleet and cross the line first.

Wendy Miller also sailed well, gaining time on her rivals and finishing second in race one.

Next week, a training session will be held from 9.30am, before two pointscore races in the afternoon. For more information, see the club's website; wlbc.org.au.

Race 1: 1st Terry Ubrihien (Nacra 4.5); 2nd Wendy Miller (Sabre); 3rd Darren Lydiard (Stingray cat).
