Despite the brilliance of the ASCC victory, the defending champion Honda Marine team (David McDiarmid, Matt Steven, Brad Collins) sealed the overall championship victory with an amazing 17 points (15 points, net) from the eight races sailed to date.

ASCC won the start and quickly dominated the fleet, in the light South wind, to lead by 45 seconds after a short beat across the harbour to the windward mark off Clark Island.

The skill of the ASCC team was on display throughout the race as each challenge was repelled before ASCC crossed the finish line two minutes three seconds ahead of Honda Marine, with Finport Finance (Keagan York, Matt Stenta, Charlie Gundy) just 6s further back in third place.

ASCC maintained the lead on the long spinnaker run to the Obelisk Bay mark, ahead of Honda Marine, Asko Appliances, Finport Finance, Winning Group, C-Tech (Alex Vallings), Vintec (Kirk Mitchell), Birkenhead Point Marina (Marcus Ashley-Jones) and Brisbane 18s (Dave Hayter).

The long work back from Obelisk to Rose Bay produced a close battle in the leading group but the ASCC crew were always in control and maintained a 40 second advantage over Honda Marine. Finport Finance was now in third place, however Finport was more than two minutes behind the leader.

Positions at the front of the fleet didn’t change over the next two legs of the course before Finport Finance made a move which saw her trail ASCC by just a couple of boat-lengths on the second run to Obelisk.

Once again the skills of the ASCC crew was evident as they held off both Finport Finance and Honda Marine and still led by 15s after the fleet reached the Rose Bay mark.
The battle between Honda Marine and Finport Finance continued over the final two legs of the course but ASCC was in a race of her own as she powered away for a great victory.
Early wind predictions for tomorrow are for 18-20 knot NE winds which should some of the most spectacular racing of the entire championship.

بعد يوم طويل من التعب والعمل الشاق يذهب الإنسان إلى بيته وملجئه الوحيد للحصول على قسط من الراحة، ولتحقيق هذه الراحة يجب عمل عدة أشغال حتى يشعر أصحاب المنزل بالأمان والسكينة، لذلك أول ما على الإنسان أن يعمله هو تجهيز المنزل وإعداده بالطرق السليمة، فالمنزل كأي جماد معرَّض للتلف مع مرور الوقت بسبب العوامل والظروف البيئية القاسية المحيطة به مثل درجة الحرارة العالية، والأمطار، والرطوبة، وأكثر ما يتعرض لتلك العوامل هو الأسطح الخارجية الحامية للمنزل من الأخطار والهلاك، وهنا يجب أخذ كافة الاحتياطات والتدابير اللازمة بخصوص الأمن والسلامة لأنّها من الضروريات والأسس الواجب تحقيقها للشعور براحة البال على المدى البعيد، وللقيام بذلك يلجأ العديد من الناس إلى طرق عزل الأسطح سنوضحها في هذا المقال.
