Maxwell Curtis Wins Edward Cross Long Distance Comet Race
Curtis & Furbert in action
The 2020 Edward Cross Long Distance Race got underway in bright and sunny skies in the St. Georges Harbor. First out of the town cut channel was Gladwin Lambert and his crew Stefan Maybury, followed by Rudy Bailey, with Stephen Dickinson right behind.
The trio remained in the positions as the made their way around Fort St. Catherine heading for the oil docks
At the oil docks, things changed a bit with Bailey taking the lead with Dickinson in second and Lambert had fallen a distance back in third.
As the fleet approached Flatts, Bailey had taken full control of the race, with Maxwell Curtis in second, Lambert in third and Dickinson in fourth.
Curtis was able to sail past Bailey just off Devonshire and open up a four-boat length lead, while Dickinson made a tack to try and line himself up for one straight run to the finish line.
Curtis and Bailey had to make another tack to come back to Dickinson and Lambert, Bailey decoded a short tack which costed him, while Curtis went across to where Dickinson was and rolled on top of him and from there it was a sprint to the line with Curtis needing one more tack to just edge Dickinson by two seconds.
