SIBLING RIVALRY IN BIG BREEZE


Minkie and Windswept

In the Indian Ocean of Fremantle, Western Australia, sailors are used to a “bit of breeze.” In this group of photos you can see a close finish in the Ron Warren Trophy Race sailed Dec. 15th. With the breeze in the 20s, the Beneteau First 30 MINKIE sailed by Steve Delfos squeaked out a class win by 1 second over his brother Ernie Delfos sailing WINDSWEPT, a Jeanneau Sun Fast 32. Both boats sail with UK Sailmakers sails; MINKIE with X-Drives and WINDSWEPT with an X-Drive main and Tape-Drive genoa. Post race beverages were well earned by all. Chris Bender photos.
