Elusive 2 was the first boat at Mgarr Harbour in Gozo in the passage race from the Grand Harbour on Friday 23rd November.  With Christoph Podesta at the helm, Elusive’s crew made the most of the strong winds to tackle the race courses set out by principal race officer Peter Dimech to win 3 of the 4 other races and taking the overall title with a healthy margin. 

In IRC Racer Class II, Maltese Falcon 2, skippered by Jonathan Camilleri Bowman was first in all races, winning the class. The IRC Cruiser class was a closer affair with Peter Ellul Vincenti’s Manana slightly edging Fedinand Grech’s Kon Tiki for the class victory.
