Commodore takes out the Darwin Saumlaki Yacht Race

Commodore Peter Locket and the crew of Avnago, showed perseverance in light conditions to take the winners podium in the Darwin Saumlaki Yacht Race, which commenced last Saturday.

Finishing at 0727 Hrs Wednesday (Darwin time), Peter together with crew comprising Avenal and their son Andrew, Robin Knox and Bad Ekeberg continued racing while others succumbed to to the temptation of the iron topsail and the attraction of a cool drink (or two) in Saumlaki.

Morokot (Wayne Bateman), Vitamin B (Steve Winspear), Churchkey (Michael Skinner) and Kuching (Bruce Panting also made the trip to the closest Indonesian port to Darwin, but all moved from racing division to cruising, by starting their motors.
