Max Starostin is back!
Max is a founder of Far East Yacht Club, and he’s been away from SL Sailing for far too long. 🙂 Today he announced his first race since he returned to the grid: Takos from the Arafura Raceline. Takos? It hasn’t been THAT long, Max! 🙂 I’m guessing he was just being nostalgic today.
Temi Sirbu, rokuonji Tomorrow, Bunta Beck and Como Canning joined him in Sea of Fables, and just like old times the fleet took off with Max in the lead.
Bunta Beck crossed the line in the #2 spot, and all three boats hung in tight for the beat to the top red mark.
Over the reach leg to Green, Max consolidated his lead and the Sirbu/ Tomorrow team struggled to catch up with Bunta Beck.
Here is Max on the run home; he finished a full minute ahead of the others.
I’m not sure quite what happened to Bunta Beck (the last leg was out of my draw distance), but when the fog cleared it was Temi Sirbu and rokuonji Tomorrow coming across the line in the Runner Up position. Bunta bravely recovered and sailed in 20 seconds later.
Here’s the final damage report:
Winner: Max Starostin ID51 Race time: 00:08:40

In case you were wondering where Como Canning was, I think he slept through the whole thing!
Welcome back Max!
