Rainbow II takes up early running at One Ton Revisted regatta

The Farr 40 Pacific Sundance (Bernard Hyde) again took line honours in race 2 of the One Ton Revisited regatta – a 20-mile Olympic course off Auckland's East Coast Bays. But, the winner on corrected time was the S&S 36 Rainbow II (Chris Bouzaid) which now leads on overall points after a second in the opening race on Saturday and now a victory today.

It was champagne sailing in the Hauraki Gulf with a 10 to 12-knot north-easter and enough of a chop to put a real premium on helming upwind.

Pacific Sundance led from start to finish but could not stretch away enough to make up the time she needed on handicap.

Rainbow II slugged it out all day with the Lidgard design Result (Bevan Hill) and the Farr design Revolution (Tony Wallis and Max Cossey).

“It was a real boat race – demanding but a lot of fun – and everything we remember about the halcyon days of the One Ton Cup,” said Bouzaid. “It kind of reminds you what keel boat racing is missing out on these days”. — Alan Seftonn
