Chris Dixon, Greg Dixon and Justin Healey win Mick Scully Trophy on Sydney Harbour this weekend 5/11/07
Chris Dixon, Greg Dixon and Justin Healey were clearly the masters of the 15-18 kt westerly wind on Sydney Harbour yesterday when they brought their skiff CST Composites home an easy winner of the Mick Scully Trophy race. The tough conditions saw six of the 22 starters fail to complete the course.
The trio grabbed the lead on the second windward leg of the course to record a 4mins 1sec win over Kinder Caring Home Nursing, skippered by Brett Van Munster. Pure Blonde (Janes Francis) was a further 52secs back in third place, just ahead of the early race leader Macquarie Real Estate, skippered by 2005 world champion Euan Mc Nicol.
Maytag (Nick Press), Ssangyong Yandoo (John Winning), Club Marine (Adam Beashel) and Keith Piggin Estate Agents (Peter Morrison) were next in a great finish which saw the group cross the line with just a few seconds separating.
